Striped Kukri Snake (Oligodon octolineatus)
Dempsey Hill, 22nd August 2016

This Striped Kukri Snake roadkill was seen by Ho Ee Kid, and shared with the Nature Society (Singapore) Facebook group.

In this week’s episode of “Where the hell am I?”, I found myself at Jervois Hill, a place littered with some terrifyingly enormous houses and strange road names (e.g. Mount Echo Park and Bishopsgate).

This was also the place where this Ficedula flycatcher (I’m guessing it’s a female Yellow-rumped Flycatcher) met with its untimely end while on migration.

EDIT: This is a first winter male Yellow-rumped Flycatcher (Ficedula zanthopygia). Poor thing.
