Meet Ng Teong Lin!

Hello everyone! I am Mr Ng and I am a freelance photographer specializing in bird and nature photography! I come to the Pandan Canal almost daily to photograph the grey-headed fish eagle that hunts here twice a day. I am always accompanied by a very passionate group of bird photographers that station here for up to 3 to 4 hours – all of us waiting to capture that split second when the eagle dives into the canal to catch its prey!

While waiting for that instantaneous moment, many of us pass the time chatting about our photography and equipment, sharing our lives and routines. This is how our eagle-spotting community has grown over time and today we are a group of a few hundred photographers brought together by this raptor.

This coming August, I look forward to bring you with me to spot this unique bird and meet the many bird photographers that nest at this canal! Even if we don’t see the famed eagle, be rest assured that there are many other interesting creatures to spot along the Pandan Canal!
