Free guided walk at Pasir Ris Mangroves with the Naked Hermit Crabs

Today is the last session of the Naked Hermit Crabs' April Pasir Ris Mangrove guided walk.
We had about 30 visitors with us today. Many exciting things were seen, including a dead water monitor lizard.

Just before the trip started, Ley Kun found the kapok tree. (Sorry, no pictures from me) When the fruit of the kapok tree explodes, it releases fluffy materials that feels like cotton wool. If I am not wrong, my parents used to buy these fluffy materials from shops to make pillows.

Right at the first bend of the mangrove boardwalk, there were a cluster of garbage bags placed at one corner.

The case of the missing and reappearing bird nest

Last week (21 April), Ria noticed that the sunbird's nest outside the female toilet at Pasir Ris Park carpark C was gone/removed/destroyed (?). We were rather sad about it and we didn't took photos of it that day.

Today, we noticed the nest back at the same spot. Weird....

Mosquito control at Nature parks and places?

The monthly free guided walk by the Naked Hermit Crabs, the crabs noticed two NEA staff carrying what seems to look like mosquito control equipment.

We were all rather upset to see their presence at Chek Jawa, a beautiful nature place unique with 6 different ecosystems at one location.

Baby wild boars, nesting hornbills and grey herons at Chek Jawa

It's my first Naked Hermit Crabs guiding trip for the year at Chek Jawa.
Due to school commitments, I couldn't volunteer for the guiding sessions in February and March. The crabs took a CNY break in January.

It was unusually crowded today at Changi Point Ferry Terminal.
There were groups and cyclists going to Pengerang on one side, and crowds of NPCC students and Ubin  visitors on the other. The Ubin bumboat extend their queue line to cater for the large crowd.

I'm so excited

I'm so excited to revive my blog with what I have today.
The blog posts will be coming soon.
