Soft and silty Changi Beach

Despite today being a school day, I still signed up for a field trip session.
Three ladies went to a rocky part of Changi Beach to explore.
This shore we visited used to be very rocky, but it is now rather silty and the substrate can be quite soft.

The shore is covered with shells of bivalves. They are dead bivalves though.
Even though there are many dead bivalves on the shore, I did see some live ones.
Some type of cockle. Notice how the shell tails off on one side.
Cockle - a small and a medium size.
Pretty Bean-shaped venus clam.
