I'm back on the shore with the Naked Hermit Crabs and a wild bunch of families!
Wow, we had lots and lots of visitors today, probably about 80 mums, dads and kids! A small school group and a small group of visitors who were already at Chek Jawa and decided to join us.
colourful little fiddler crabs, tiny mudskippers, a Giant mudskipper, Tree-climbing crabs as well as the Nipah palms which were blooming and fruiting.
fiddler crabs when we got out to the seaward side of the mangroves.
Blue-spotted mudskipper I've seen on Chek Jawa so far. We also saw 'dancing mudskippers' that stand on their tails to impress the lady mudskippers. As well as all kinds of other mudskippers quarreling and playing on the mudflats. We also looked at the Great-billed heron, a Grey heron, kingfishers, a soaring fish eagle and many swooping swifts.
oysters on the rocky shore has just been pried open. Probably by a human with a screw driver. Sigh.
Spoon seagrass and rare Ribbon seagrass growing right below the boardwalk. We also spotted a carpet anemone that Ivan told us about. Ley Kun told us she also saw an octopus!
Malayan water monitor lizard lazily walking in the shady part of the rocky shore above the waterline.
Pasir Ris walk and returned with friends for the Chek Jawa walk. It was a thrill to see them again!
Seashore nutmeg! This tree has male and female flowers on different trees. This looks like a male flower, different from the female flowers that I had taken photos of earlier.
