Wild Shores of Singapore: Lost Coast quickly

Wild Shores of Singapore: Lost Coast quickly

Thanks to Subaraj and Con Foley, I got a ride into the 'Lost Coast' on a beautiful blue-sky day. This enormous reclaimed area at Changi East is stunningly wild! And it was really nice to visit without going through another Death March ! Subaraj and Con Foley regularly visit this shore to document the shorebirds and seabirds there. There's a huge snail-ringed lagoon here, now full of shorebirds as the migratory season has started. One of the rare birds on this shore is the Malayan plover (Charadrius peronii ) which is resident in Singapore and probably lays its eggs at Changi East. I've also seen this bird at nearby Tanah Merah's oil-slicked shores . There were lots of huge Horn-eyed ghost crabs (Ocypode cerathopthalmus ) on the shore too. The Malayan plovers were hardly bigger than the crabs, and also moved quickly like the crabs. I kept focusing on crabs instead of birds!...
