“Here’s an uncommon winter visitor hanging out at a monsoon pond in a disused area at Seletar. The Black-winged Stilt (Himantopus himantopus) has a long bill for probing into mud, but in this case, it seems quite happy snacking on water bugs at the water’s surface.

“It also bobs its head like a kingfisher from time to time, I wonder why.”

      9th December 2013? It’s end of 2013 already? Just kind of find it funny, but I guess it’s 2012 actually, right?
