This very rocky shore is just a few hundred metres from Sentosa and its western shore is part of the Sisters' Islands Marine Park.
The Fluted giant clam is still there. It was retracted in the rain. We couldn't find the larger one that was seen on our last survey in Aug 2021.
Button zoanthids continue to cover large stretches of the eastern rocky areas. There also remains a lot of Long black sea cucumbers as well as Giant carpet anemones and Giant top shell snails. I also saw a Spangled flatworm and a Wiggly reef star anemone.
Frilly anemones, they seem to really like the pebbly areas.
Merulinid corals. Some had pale patches, but most were alright. I also saw one Anemone coral, one Crinkled sandpaper coral and and one Cauliflower coral.
Leathery soft corals of various kinds.
Sickle seagrass covers a large area of this shore, with fresh green leaf blades.
Spoon seagrass with small leaf blades. The patch of Tape seagrass had male flower bracts (I didn't see any male flowers) and leaves were longish (about 20-30cm). When I last saw it in Nov 2020, this patch was also producing male flowers. Overall, the seagrass situation is very similar to what I saw in Aug 2021.
