27 Oct (Sat): Migratory Land Birds Walk at Rifle Range (a World Migratory Bird Day event)

Open to the Public - Registration Needed

Migratory shorebirds and raptors are well known to birdwatchers, but land birds tend to be overlooked. Singapore receives well over 30 species of warblers, flycatchers, robins and cuckoos each year. Many of these land birds would have flown in from as far north as the boreal forests of Siberia. On this walk from Rifle Range Road to Sime Forest, Dr. Yong Ding Li will talk about the journeys taken by these migratory land birds, while aiming to spot new arrivals such as the Yellowrumped Flycatcher, Siberian Blue Robin and Forest Wagtail.

More details and registration on the NSS website.

Time: 7.15am to 10.30am
Venue: Meet at the end of Rifle Range Road at 7.15 am.
