18 Nov (Sat): Migratory Bird Watch at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve

Join Cicada Tree Eco Place at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, one of Singapore’s most treasured nature sites. It opened in 1993 and is visited by thousands every year, from families to schools and tourists. It’s the peak migratory bird month here and we are going there to witness and be awestruck by the thousands of shorebirds winging in synchronized formation into the Reserve. They are the wading birds who live and breed in the arctic tundra, coming here to the tropics to escape the northern winter.
Little Egret (Egretta garzetta)
Their annual journey is an incredible and dangerous one, and many will not make it back home. Sungei Buloh is a crucial resting, roosting and re-fueling stop for them. Come see these amazing wild birds…whimbrel, sandpiper, turnstone, redshank, greenshank, plovers and more.

More details and tickets on facebook.

Meeting and end point: Sungei Buloh’s Wetland Centre. This was previously the visitor centre and is at the reserve’s old entrance at Neo Tiew Crescent road.
Cost: $13 per participant, free for kids of participants aged 6 yrs and below
