Members Only - Registration Needed

September's pelagic trip is undertaken to view seabirds on their autumn migration.  We will sail the Singapore Strait and turn around between the end of Changi and north of Batam.  Expect Swift and Lesser Crested Terns and the less common Bridled and Aleutian Terns.  Swinhoe's Storm Petrels undertake their southwards migration at this time too.  With luck, we may also encounter the odd shearwater, skua and even frigatebird!
