The Herons of Sungei Sembawang

The Sungei Sembawang area used to be a swamp which was filled up to build the Sembawang housing estate in the 1990s, and served as a breeding ground for the resident marsh birds such as the Grey Heron, Striated Heron, Black-Crowned Night Heron and Little Egrets. The marsh birds have since returned and they are now quite a common sight along the mud flats and banks of the now canalised river.
