Sea Fans! In Singapore?

Sea Fans! They are made up of flexible substance called gorgonin, and the growth rate is dependent on season and climatic variation.

Photo taken on a floating platform at Marina @ Keppel Bay! The platform is build based on 'open concept' which allow marine life to grow in the bay. There are marine life in singapore, and it's very important for us to conserve them. One of the steps is to volunteer in one of our green groups :)

Take a look at marina @ Keppel Bay website!

Hunt for the Blue eared kingfisher !

This kingfisher looks almost the same as the common kingfisher Alcedo atthis . The differences is the blue ear coverts, darker and more intense cobalt-blue upperparts with richer rufous under parts.

While waiting for the kingfisher to come out of it's nest, I took some photos of the Common Greenback.

 Any ID for this caterpillar like stuff...?


Storky Day at Sungei Buloh

The Milky storks found in Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserves are actually free ranging birds from both the Zoo and Bird Park. Why do they fly to Sungei Buloh? I guess its to feed, this shows that Sungei Buloh does have a rich mudflat full of organism in the mud.

They seems to get along well with the great egret (above) too. The Great Egret Egretta alba is a migrant with wing span of up to 215cm. This is also the largest egret found in Singapore. 

It's been a while since I saw the purple heron Ardea purpurea. 

And a flock of Whimbral  flew past!

What a nice day at Sungei Buloh!
