The Singaporebirdgroup wish to thank you for your contributions and support for 2015. The blog posted a total of 94 articles in 2015 attracting 71,523 views from 122 countries (Singapore,Malaysia and USA being the top three).

The top post for the year was “World’s Most Destructive Bird Species now in Singapore by Francis Yap with 14,773 views followed by “Crimson Sunbird now the National Bird of Singapore” with 6,330 views. It showed our collective concern for the environment.

The numbers are modest in comparison with other more established nature blogs but had a wider reach (in the thousands for each post) when they were shared on the Singapore Bird Group and Singapore Birders facebook pages.

We hope to have more of your contribution for 2016 on any interesting topics on bird sightings, records, behavior, events, and trips. We will certainly do our best to keep you updated on what is happening in the birding scene in Singapore.

We may have lost a few birding sites in 2015 but come February, we will have a new fresh water wetland site at Kranji to bird. Happy Birding 2016!

    You have to be always aware that you are only a city and proud of having as a city such a superb birdlife! What a huge difference to other cities in Asia.
    Greetings from traveller Kurt
    out of Pnom Pengh – nearly without any birdlife.

      Dear Kurt, Many thanks for your email. Yes we are very fortunate to have
      a “city in a garden” here. A lot of the work was due to the National Parks
      Board and the vision of Mr. Lee Kuan Yew, our late Prime Minister. The Nature
      Society (Singapore) and the Bird Group also played a large role in the conservation of habitats
      and appreciation of nature in Singapore.
