Another great day out at the Chek Jawa boardwalk for the monthly free guided walks with the Naked Hermit Crabs!
We arrived at Pulau Ubin to find it all decked out for the upcoming Tua Pek Kong's birthday!
Pinang palm (Areca cathecu). Its a plasticky thing which apparently was used to pack up food like hokkien mee!
otters were sighted from the jetty near House No. 1! Wow! Here it is recorded in the Book.
wild boar with several baby boars!
Monitor lizard. We also saw small Giant mudskippers, some fiddler crabs and of course discussed mangrove trees. We saw many different spiders today. At the coastal boardwalk, we saw lots of Gold-spotted mudskippers and also schools of large mullets!
Oriental pied-hornbills to breed by providing them with nesting boxes.
traditional wayang shows at Pulau Ubin this coming week! More about these festivities on the Pulau Ubin stories blog.
