A Purple Heron in Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve. In all the years that I have been
visiting this park, initially with children in tow and now only with the spouse, I have not seen a Purple Heron this close. Having a camera with a reasonably powerful zoom lens helped to magnify the joy of seeing this magnificent big bird perched on a tree branch waiting to catch a fish.
Click on the photos to see more photos of what I had the pleasure of encountering over three visits in the last five weeks. Sungei Buloh is also a haven for migratory birds between the months of November and March. Now, the numbers are starting to increase. Other than birds, the flora and fauna of Sungei Buloh never fail to fascinate me.
