Singapore June 2006

Only had a few days in Singapore, so I popped out early on the last day to the Botanical Gardens. Unfortunately it was so humid that I couldnt see through my binoculars and all the birds were hiding away. And my specs were misted up which was a bit worrying as there were flying beetles the size of goats. I didnt see a single bird for 30 minutes!

It began to clear and the birds appeared just before I had to leave.

Spotted Neck Dove
Yellow-Vented Bulbul
Brown Throated Sunbird
Little Spiderhunter
Eurasian Tree Sparrow (hooray!)
Philippine Glossy Starling
Common, Hill and White Vented Myna.

I also saw some unimpressively-tailed squirrels and a rat thing which scurried about with its tail pointing straight up.
