G'day All,
Just found this message on UKbirdnet.....I think there may be plenty of
interest, but it's a long way from Brisbane!

        [UKBN] Twitchable Masked Finfoot in Singapore !

Dear All

In these days of global twitching it may be of interest to know that
yesterday a Masked Finfoot was found at Sungei Buloh, Singapore, and was

still present this morning - being twitched by the 'locals'.

I would guess the Finfoot is likely to attempt to 'Winter' at this site
may be worth trying for if anyone has a few hours stopover (or longer)
Changi Airport in the next few weeks.

It apparently constitutes the 'first' record for Singapore (although I
not checked this out).

Best wishes
