Singapore Botanic Gardens - 6th Asian Bird Fair

Visited the botanic gardens today for the 6th Asian Bird Fair, quite a friendly crowd with strong interests in birds and conservation :) so tempted to embark on a birding trip to Taiwan, hopefully next year April!! 

went on a little walk from Botanic Gardens MRT station, instead of my usual start from Tanglin Gate side, quite a fair bit of walking but lots of see as usual :)
