Committee's view
1 bird (juvenile) reported over Pinnacle on 8 January, 1340, by Raghav Narayanswamy (https://ebird.org/checklist/S63154394). 2 birds (one photograph of a juvenile provided) reported over Cashew Road on 8 January, 1445, by YT Choong (https://ebird.org/checklist/S63234812). 8 birds (visible photographs show juveniles - presumably all juveniles) reported at Pinnacle on morning of 9 January by multiple observers (https://ebird.org/checklist/S63191879). 2 birds later subsequently seen by a subset of said observers (namely, Oliver Tan and Martin Kennewell) at Outram Road, presumed to be different individuals, around 1045. 11 reported at Fort Canning about 20 minutes later by Peter Bijlmakers (https://ebird.org/checklist/S63194863). A maximum count of 12 reported at Telok Blangah by Chuin Ming Lee where the birds (the same flock) were observed cirling over the Tanjong Pagar area (https://ebird.org/checklist/S63196117). A count of 10 later seen at Cashew Heights again by Raghav Narayanswamy (https://ebird.org/checklist/S63193111), presumably of the same flock.
