Bukit Timah nature reserve, Singapore Nov. 2001

  • Sunday the 25th of November, I was able to visit Bukit Timah nature reserve in Singapore. The Nature Conversation Society was conducting a bird watching walk through their very active birding group. Kim Lim Chua was the leader and about 25 high spirited fresh bird watchers from all age brackets attended....Peter Ericsson reports.

Singapore 15-16 October, 1998

  • I had a two-day stop-over in Singapore on a birding trip to Australia. Because of the lack of time and my inexperience in Asia I employed a local guide Subaraj Rajathurai. Raj proved to be an excellent birding companion with humour and considerable knowledge to add to his extraordinary field skills. In the time available I could not have found half the sites or species without him... Tim Earl reports

Some Useful bird books for Singapore:
Do you have a good book for this region that we haven't featured? let us know


A Photographic Guide to the Birds of Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore
Buy from or

  • Though only illustrating 252 species (which is more than we saw!), this helped to clinch the identification of several species where the colours in Lekagul are poor (for Malaysian forms) e.g. Mountain Imperial Pigeon, and the two "chestnut" laughing thrushes...

A Field Guide to the Birds of South-East Asia
Craig Robson: Buy from or

  • A new flexi-cover edition of this superb and influential book is now available (UK) making it much more useful as a field guide. The birds of South-East Asia details the identification, voice, breeding, status, habitat and distribution of the 1250 species and distinctive sub-species of the region covering Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, West Malaysia, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. The illustrations are excellent and Craig Robson's text reflects his position as one of the foremost ornithological authorities of S.E.Asia. Indispensable for anyone visiting the area.

A Field Guide to the Birds of West Malaysia and Singapore
Allen Jeyarajasingam, Alan Pearson: Buy from or

  • Another classic field guide in what is fast becoming the most complete series currently on offer. The high standard of text and illustrations that we have come to expect of Oxford University Press is maintained, along with a wealth of information about the area, one which is often visited by birdwatchers but until now has not been covered by a decent field guide. Its small, portable nature and quick easy use make this a great book for the field or the home library.

Where to watch birds in Asia
Wheatley, Nigel: Buy from or

  • This guide to birdwatching in Asia deals with over 250 sites in detail, and more in passing, from Turkey to Thailand and India to Indonesia. It is designed as much for pre-planning birding trips as for use in the country or countries on the itinerary. The countries are dealt with alphabetically and after a general introduction, there are site details, which include a list of birds to be seen, organized under the headings "Endemics", "Specialities" and "Others"; a list of "Other Wildlife" is also included where there is something of particular interest.

Recommended travel books for Singapore:

Lonely Planet: Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei
Chris Rowthorn et al: Buy from or

  • You can shop in Singapore's Orchard Road malls or experience the abundant wildlife of Taman Negara National Park in Peninsula Malaysia. You could check out the water villages of Brunei, one of the worlds smallest but richest counties; discover bat caves and orang-utans in Sarawak; climb Mount Kinabalu in Sabah; or check out the incredible diving waters off Semporna. Importantly, there are several pages for birdwatchers including a very useful over view of the main sites.
