Time to pay another visit to Bukit Brown Cemetery after the completion of the Lornie Highway.  We will explore Bukit Brown for its birds.  Sections of this historical corner of Singapore was closed off for road construction, but there are still undisturbed areas for birding.  Expect to see a mix of parkland, open country and forest (given the proximity to the Central Catchment Nature Reserve) birds such as bulbuls, doves, babblers, flowerpeckers, parakeets, sunbirds and woodpeckers.
