Gettin reacquainted...

It's been a while since I've been out in the field but this is about to change with the choice I made. Decided to see how Gardens by the Bay is coming along whether some wildlife have returned. The answer is yes but you need to have a pair of sharp eyes to spot the birds. There is a lesser whistling ducks, lots of yellow bitterns and local kingfishers.
Me, I decided to focus and pick out the yellow bitterns that blend very well into the water land habitat. Spotted this on getting shade from the lotus leaf, and watching for its next meal to swim by.
Bittern staying motionless and waiting

The were the usual territorial squabbles among the bitterns for turf and one such squabble flashed out two more from the lush vegetation.
Bittern so light it can walk on water. Not really its weight is distributed by those long toes.
The next time you wander around those green spaces keep a look out. You might just spot something interesting.
