Updating this post with my Singapore lifers I had gotten since March 2014. I have re-numbered them as I am no longer counting escapee species in my Singapore lifer list. As at 31 Dec 2015, there are 392 species in the official Nature Society of Singapore (NSS) Bird List. I am happy to have broken through the 300th species mark o

Lifer #317 - Indian Paradise Flycatcher @ Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve (25 Mar 2018).
First confirmed record for Singapore and the whole of Southeast Asia (excluding Myanmar) if it's not an escapee from the pet trade.
It was actually photographed in early Dec 2017 but mis-identified as the usual migratory paradise flycatcher. This is about the same time Singapore and Southeast Asia got its first record of the Booted Warbler at Kranji Marsh which less than a mile away from Sungei Buloh.
Probably some strong winds must have blown the Indian Paradise Flycatcher and Booted Warbler way off course when they were heading south to winter at Sri Lanka.
