Golfballs, to be precise. There were lots and LOTS of them all along Berlayar shore.
The narrow stretch of seagrasses along the eastern edge of the Berlayar Creek boardwalk is still there and doing well. The strip of seagrasses, however, is quite narrow and not very long.
Haddon's carpet anemones (Stichodactyla haddoni) on the shore. Most of them looked alright. One of them had a little anemone shrimp living on it.
Fan shells (Pinna sp.), small clumps of the tough Zebra coral (Oulastrea crispata) , and a few sponges. This is, however, a pale shadow of the shore before the boardwalk was built. I saw a lot more on this trip in Apr 2009.
Spider conch (Lambis lambis).
clump of eggs probably laid by squids.
Spoon seagrasses (Halophila ovalis).
Tape seagrass (Enhalus acoroides) in deeper water.
Sargassum seaweeds (Sargassum sp.). But it was nice to see a small clump of Halymenia seaweed (Halymenia sp.).
Aug 2010, Jul 2010, Feb 2012, Apr 2012). Just four months ago, in Oct 2012, the Toddycats removed more than 200kgs of litter and recorded the different kinds of litter found at Berlayar Creek. There was also my correspondence with Keppel Club in Apr 2012 on this issue. Despite these efforts, there doesn't seem to be an end to problem of golf balls on this shore.
There's lots of other litter too on the shore, including this handphone.
Dec 2011 and again in Dec 2012.

Andy posted lots more about the balls on the shore.
