    There is a canal path opposite the road (Ghim Moh side). Go there and you can see many kingfishers, woodpeckers, egrets etc.

    Be prepared and be warned - thick grass, lalang means got snakes and other creatures like iguanas. Go to a hardware shop and get a pair of yellow "PCK" boots and wear thick jeans.

    But better still, your No4 uniform got camouflage - but dunno if get caught, kenna charged under the SAF Act 1972.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    i got a few sets of saf #4.... i dont use them anymore tho... i wear #3

    most useful item provided by saf = gortex jacket ; protects camera and keeps u dry

    actually u can wear the saf #4 pants and pck boots... at most u will just look like foreign worker.

    Maybe a 600mm F/4 lens will do the trick?

    cross the road parallel to the mrt tracks i.e. the direction of ghim moh market, you should see a bus stop on the other side. continue walking along the road, the entrance to the canal isn't too far away.
