There's slivers of mangroves at Admiralty Park which slide over to Sungei Cina.
I finally see some of the fishes listed in the awesome Guide to the Mangroves of Singapore. The streams were teeming with these little fishes.
Whitespot (Aplocheilus panchax)?
Common mullet goby (Hemigobius hoevenii)?
Grey knight goby (Stigmatogobius sadanundio), the first time I've actually seen them!
Mangrove bumblebee gobies (Brachygobius kabiliensis).
Guide to the Dragonflies of Singapore, I think it's the Varigated green skimmer (Orthetrum sabina), which the guide says is very common and widespread. Check out his Dragonflies and Damselflies of Singapore website for more photos!
here's some from the Guide to the mangroves of Singapore. Of course, there were other kinds of dragonflies (and butterflies) but I couldn't photograph them.
recently. The tree is very tall, so it's hard to photograph the details. I think there are buds on the tree, and I saw large opened fruit pods.
Nipah palm (Nypa fruiticans). One had a bunch of freshly blooming 'flowers'. The male flowers form a long sausage like shape, while the female flowers form a ball shape.
The mangroves at Admiralty Park are connected to Sungei Cina. The tide was incoming fast and high today!
