The dense beds of mussels are still at Kranji! The situation is quite similar to what we saw in Mar 2017.
Large portions of the shore were covered by mussels that formed dense beds with their byssus threads (fibres that the clams produce to attach to hard surfaces). In some places, they were so dense they bunched up into piles.
Here's a closer look at them.
There were also some patches of what appears to be bare sand. And the water is quite clear. Very little sediments stir up when stepping into the water.
Sea lettuce seaweed, much of it growing on the mussel beds, and washing up on the high shore.

Liz Lim compares what she saw today with another shore at Kranji that she has been surveying regularly with the Nature Society (Singapore) for their Horseshoe crab Research and Rescue.
