    Default Field Checklist - Yishun Park

    I would like to encourage BC members who are out in various places to record your sightings. Even without photos, many of you are now able to ID quite a good number of species within the Singapore checklist. If you have photographic records, all the better.

    Those of you with smartphones may also want to consider downloading the free app, Runkeeper, which gives you a good GPS track of where you've been and also keep as a record after your visit to any particular sites.

    I was out at Yishun Park a couple of weekends back, and here is my checklist of sighting for that location. Some of you may want to try out this park. It's one of the "feeder" parks for the new Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. A surprise that I spotted there was the Malay Staff Sergeant that came down to puddle on some fruits. A jogging couple scared it away though.

    Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try
