  • A Brilliant Trip To Bohol

    A brilliant trip to Bohol for easter. The birding started at the hotel, with a flyover pair of Pink-necked Green Pigeons as we arrived. Birds around the hotel and on the beach were pretty standard, but did include a decent sized flock of Common Terns, ssp. longipennis, which were very striking with their long tails streamers and bright white tail and rumps.

    On Wednesday I took a trip to Rajah Sikatuna N.P. that I'd arranged with Ryan Sugala. A great day out in a truly wonderful patch of forest. We spent the first few hours of the day trying to track down Yellow-breasted Tailorbird, which we ...

We heard several bird calls (including that of a cuckoo) and spotted a few flying past us. It was so much more challenging noticing birds in this forest compared to back in Singapore’s Bukit Timah Nature Reserve w ...

    SWCF’s involvement started in 1998 with a natural resour ...
