Lifer #322 - Eurasian Skylark @ Pandan Reservoir (7 Nov 2018).

Another first confirmed record for Singapore and the 2nd for Southeast Asia (the first one was seen in the East Malaysian State of Sabah on 2 Nov 2018) provided it's not an escapee from the pet trade.

Congratulations Seetoh, the bird’s plumage certainly doesn’t show any cage-related damage, it looks pristine!

Lifer #323 - Black-headed Bunting @ Kranji (18 Nov 2018).

Another first confirmed record for Singapore. There was a previous unconfirmed record in 1995. I think this is a Black-headed Bunting (rather than a Red-headed) from the lack of white outertail feathers. Its tail appeared to be in a pretty bad shape though. It will be up to the Records Committee to determine its status in Singapore.

Lifer #329 - Daurian Redstart @ Singapore Botanic Gardens (13 Nov 2019).

Not in the official Singapore Bird List yet. But the 3 confirmed sightings (the other 2 in Feb 2013 and Jan 2014) should get it into the list I reckoned.

Lifer #332 - Dusky Warbler - @ Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (22 Dec 2019).

This is only the 3rd confirmed record for Singapore.

This species is my #332 because it is unlikely for the Blue Whistling Thrush (sighted on 8 Dec 2019) to be accepted by the Records Committee in view of its feather condition.
