There are reefy areas on the artificial East Coast Park shores!
It is a super super low tide and due to the haze, we decided to cancel all boat trips and focus on mainland shores. Kok Sheng suggested we check out Bedok Jetty, which we had not visited at low tide since 2009. I did check out the Jetty in Mar 2013 but at high tide and only had glimpses of the marine life here.
Tree sea fan (Family Melithaeidae) we saw three large basket stars.
basket star. We had seen lots and lots of these basket stars in the dredge surveys of the bottom of Singapore's seas during the recent Southern Expedition.
ovulid snail (Family Ovulidae) living on a sea fan. This snail is found only on sea fans, blending perfectly with its host.
Hypselodoris kanga nudibranch was seen. I've not seen it for a while.
blue feather star was also spotted. Among its arms was the brittle star (Ophiomaza cacaotica) that lives only in feather stars.
Sally-lightfoot crabs (Grapsus albolineatus) on the left, and the Pimply Sally-light-foot crab (Plagusia squamosa).
the sea fans he saw in 2009 are no longer there.
lush seagrass meadows on East Coast Park!
