Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve

A flock of egrets nesting at Sungei Buloh, Singapore's first and only wetland reserve. The park is a seasonal stopover for migratory birds. It is home to some 126 bird species including sandpipers, plovers, herons, kingfishers and sunbirds.
As you walk on the boardwalks, you can see mudflats and mangroves with their distinctive aerial roots as seen here.
Found! A rustic spot for a picture.
A signboard outlining the species of fishes that swim in the waters here.
A specially constructed tower which offers a bird's eye view of the green and watery surroundings.
One of the views offered at the park. Look closely at the edge of the water and you see one of the resident denizens.
Here's the closeup view of the prehistoric looking reptile, known as a monitor lizard.

  8. Great shots. I like the look of your wetlands. The only one I've been to is across the street from the beach and is hardly this lush and green and no break from the sun on a hot day.

  9. Oh, that lizard is really interesting! I've never seen one like that. I also have a lizard in my Round Robin posting for this week, but he's a desert lizard instead of a wetlands lizard. Nice work on your posting. It looks like you had a wonderful day visiting this preserve!

  12. Probably not a great place to go for a swim! He is a very large lizard..great tour..thanks! :)

  13. I like your wildlife pictures, especially that monitor lizard, although I would keep my distance. LOL! Great job!
