Hi Everyone

Its on even if it rains. There are plenty of shelters (called hides) for bird watching at the park.

Those who drive, can do us a favor by stopping by briefly at Kranji MRT to ferry early birds to the park. The rest can take bus 925 in (15 min journey). Late comers can catch up at the park - we start slowly at the visitor area then cross the main bridge over the river and do a counter clockwise loop around the park.

Please email to sylvia at
sunshineang33@gmail.com with your name, email address, gender, age, profession if you are interested as I have to inform the organiser the no. of pax coming.

This is a free natural walk so you only pay for your own food and drink during lunch time. There is no age limit and no gender ratio because its a nature walk.

Closing date : Thursday 25 November 10 pm.

Cheers
Sunshine (Sylvia)

hi everyone

20 young singles in 20s, 30s, and early 40s join the nature walk. The guide teck seng is from the naturalist society. He explained to us the plants, trees and species of migratory birds. He could recognise the sound made by various type of migratory birds. We went to the hide (a shelter) to watch the migratory bird and I have posted some picture in my facebook.

It was a very successful nature walk and we went to the shopping centre for lunch after than and make some new friends.

cheers
sunshine
