We had been told that wolf snakes were easy to locate in and around the Punggol waterway park so J and I set off for it 7am last sunday. So we walked up and down the whole 1km or so of the whole park but sadly we were unable to find any snakes…the other fauna though made up for it and I saw some interesting other birds…
Almost the first thing I saw as we started our walk were these beautiful bulbuls, the Sooty Headed Bulbul with its distinctive black head and beautiful deep orange vent….in contrast to the much commoner yellow vented bulbul in Singapore. There were quite a number of them here and they have also been reported in the Lorong Halus area.
So although we didn’t find our serpents, the other bird life did not disappoint…
Brilliant photos. Love the geometry of the pond skater.
Hi Ron. Fantastic shot of the grey heron extending it’s neck – unbelievable neck anatomy! As for those parakeets, they may be red-breasted parakeets. SB
