Singapore Birding I

We flew to Singapore to see an old friend of mine working there and to watch wildlife in early March.

For birdwatching, we asked a professional bird guide, Mr Lim Kim Seng, for 2 full days and we were glad that we asked him as we had absolutely wonderful birding days with him.

We took a small boat from Changi to Pulau Ubin (Ubin islandウビン島)

a White-bellied Sea Eagle (Shiroharaumiwashiシロハラウミワシ)

It was low tide and the mudflat was spreading far out.
