Drizzling lightly today when we started. At pt.1, oily sheen on water surface from upstream and at side of canal. At pt.2, spotted some aquatic birds like white breasted waterhen and little egret. Many fishes in water and tortoise/terrapin in water.Walking upstream saw murky/milk -coloured water flowing from HDB estate into the river, source unknown. At pt 3, sighted more birds including white breasted waterhen, lttle egret and little heron! Pink snail eggs sighted too. Noted litter such as plastic bags, bottles, water packets, clothes peg near or in the river. Took group pic, missing our team leader Martina as she has to work. Overall a good day with many birds sighted!
