Otters at Chek Jawa!

My first time spotting otters during a Naked Hermit Crab walk at the Chek Jawa boardwalk!
Smooth-coated otters (Lutrogale perspicillata)
They are quite shy and stayed away from the people. The visitors also spotted a mangrove whipray! This is why I prefer to visit Chek Jawa at a high tide. We won't enjoy such sightings at low tide.

Seashore begins at Marina East

Nearly ten years since my last visit to this shore! Thanks to Kok Sheng for visiting beforehand and sharing that this shore is now accessible once again.
Marina East  shore off the Marina Barrage
Although the shore is not very rich (yet?), there's already lots of seagrasses and signs of returning life. It will be exciting to see whether it will return to its former glory. On the way to the shore, I noticed some small dead fishes floating on the seaward side of the Marina Barrage. And there is a green bloom of algae inside the Marina Reservoir.
