4 Dec (Sun): Birdwatching at Choa Chu Kang Cemeteries

for Nature Society (Singapore) members only

Cemeteries are excellent birding areas in urban cities. The cemeteries at CCK border the Western Live Firing areas and Poyan and are left relatively undisturbed. Open landscape and scattered trees and scrubs make up most of the habitat here. From our meeting point, we will drive around the fringes to the Indian, Chinese and Muslim Cemeteries, stopping at vantage points and interesting high grounds to look out for raptors and passerine migrants. We can check out the birdlife inside the Poyan restricted areas from the roadside at the Muslim Cemetery. The accidental visiting Jerdon’s Baza had been seen here. Common Buzzard was reported over at Tengah Airbase. Flocks of Oriental Pratincoles have also been seen flying overhead. Please car pool.

Time: 7.30-11am. Meet by Path 2 and 13 of the Christian Cemetery.
