How did the construction of the boardwalk affect the shores at Berlayar Creek? I decided to find out today!
I came across 10 of these Haddon's carpet anemones (Stichodactyla haddoni) and they were all in good health.
Laganum sand dollar (Laganum depressum) which is rarely encountered. Does this skeleton mean there are live ones somewhere on the shore?!
TeamSeagrass at the request of NParks. So it was very heartening to see some patches of Spoon seagrass (Halophila ovalis)!
Strap brown seaweed (Dictyota sp.)!
Sargassum seaweed (Sargassum sp.) growing on what seems to be a reefy edge in deeper water, facing the Marina at Keppel Bay. Today, the tide was too high to see what's out there.
Gold-spotted mudskippers (Periophthalmus chrysospilos) on the shore. I didn't really carefully explore the shore as the tide was short, so I can't really say with certainty how the shore compares to my last slow visit there in July 2010. I'll have to come back more regularly to check up on the shore.
Sentosa, Tanjung Rimau.
massive reclamation for the new Pasir Panjang Container Terminal going on just off Labrador shore.
