Wetlands Pt.2

Interesting to see the following scene right smack in the middle of a housing area. Well, I am not the observant type and these could be common scenes all over town. Just want to post it before it disappeared from my neighbourhood. Its facing a row of terrace houses and the question is not whether they will be replaced by another housing project, the question is when?

Two cute little heads sticking out among the wild flowers behind a row of houses. Indonesian kongsi houses are nearby.....
They are the Lesser Whistling Ducks (Dendrocygna javanica)

On the way to town, near where Merbok competitions are held, some wild birds play by the road side (counted 6 today)......
Purple Swamphen (Porphyrio porphyrio)

I wish some company could develop this wetland into something like the Wetland Park in Hong Kong and Nanjing
