Got my first close shots of the Asian Openbill (Anastomus oscitans). There were two of them perched on this tree at Kranji Marshes, Singapore, on 23 August 2020.

The Asian Openbill is a large, wading bird in the stork family. As an adult, it has a gap in its mandible, believe to help it to eat snails. They were rarely seen here until last year when large flocks arrived.
