Monthly Roundup: Jul 2022

July is the month where the first signs of migration begin to appear, with the first arrivals of early migrants like Barn Swallows and Brown-streaked Flycatchers.

Highlights

  • Two records of Black-and-red Broadbill, at Sungei Buloh and Pulau Ubin – both are likely continuing birds
  • First confirmed record of Barred Eagle-Owl at Thomson Nature Park (possibly indicating range expansion)
  • Returning Ashy Drongo at NTU
  • An early migrant Brown-streaked Flycatcher observed by many at Jurong Lake Gardens
