A Collared Kingfisher in the Kallang Basin area

Bird life seems to be picking up at Kallang Basin. I have seen several Grey Herons as well as several unidentified shorebirds and a couple of Brahminy Kites in flight. This particular Collared Kingfisher can also be seen around the area – particularly in the trees around the National Stadium carpark.

Collared Kingfisher, 11 May 2010.
