We are seeing a rise in the level of activity by poachers. Despite calling the police, for the second weekend in a row, birds have been trapped. Here is a photo taken by one of the residents.
Wild birds being snatched in Seletar Camp
It could be due to the news that many residents will be moving out of the camp, and therefore less vigilant about threats to the flora and fauna. Shame.
In addition to the police, you may wish to report poaching incidences to the AVA.
