Hi Tom,

Raja and I spent two days birding in Singapore in July 2011. 
We only visited the area around the tree top walk in the Central Catchment near 
MacRitchie reservoir (we did not make it to Sungei Buloh or Pulau Ubin due to 
time constraints). Unfortunately, we didn't have much time for birding as you 
can see from the busy itinerary...

Arrival Thursday night
Friday: all day business
Saturday: some birding
Sunday: all day wedding of friends
Monday: some birding and then departure to Sydney

Although it wasn't the season for birding Singapore and although we never got 
to bird in the early morning or late afternoon, we still managed to see a few
