Kids had their school’s sports day at Yishun Stadium. I didn’t think it would be much fun staying. So I lugged along the big camera and went for a 4-hour birding trip at the nearby Lower Seletar Reservoir. Actually, I walked all the way to OCC (Orchid Country Club) and back. Hehe. Caught a few birds that I’d never photographed before. Very satisfied. 🙂

This shrike was so adorable, looking around with its big round eyes.

Doesn’t it look comical?

I chased this kingfisher for quite a distance but it kept flying away from me.

Love these…

These birds aren’t exactly uncommon but I was already very thrilled to photograph them. I am an amateur birder afterall. Haha. Actually, there were 2 more birds which were caught on camera: Common Kingfisher and Blue Tailed Bee-eater. Sadly, they were both too far away. I would be STOKED to capture these 2 birds! Never mind, next time!
