so if the bird hit the part of the NET (not the post) which is singles line 'out', but then tumbles 'singles line' in, it would be a fault? -hypothetical-

1.4 The posts or its supports shall not extend into the court
thus the post is considered outside the court. There is no such statement on the net, so I think it's 'in'. But I could be wrong on this.

Yup. Technicaly, the bird is still in play when it makes contact with the net tape.

1. Court and Equipment
1.3 all lines shall form part of the area they define
1.5 the posts shall be placed on the doubles side lines...
the posts are on the lines and the lines are in the court, so the posts are in the court.
13.3.6 It shall be a fault if, in play, the shuttle touches any other object or person outside the court
does not apply, because the posts are not outside the court.
But I'm not sure if we can apply that to singles...

Being hit by the shuttle is a fault under law 13.3.5:
"It shall be a fault:
13.3 If in play, the shuttle:
13.3.5 touches the person or dress of a player; ".
If the shuttle strikes the top of the post and then falls in it is not a fault. The net posts are not outside the court - they are defined as part of the court and its equipment and on the line and therefore in the court.

Ah, but look at the question again. He did not ask about hitting the post. He was asking about hitting the net tape. Specifically, in a singles game if it hits part of the net tape that is out of the signles line.
Hitting the tape should be valid for the whole length of the net regardless if it's signles or doubles.

That is true, and the answer is the same as that for the post. It is not a fault as long as it goes over and lands in.
