Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve Extension - Part 2

This is the part 2 of our Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve Extension trip.

Follow this link for part 1!

After spending some time on bird watching, we walked to the Coastal boardwalk! By the time we reached there, it was low tide, so we could spot some fishes and tiny crabs easily! I'm glad that there were many logs around, good to have a little rest!

After resting to enjoy the sea view, we continued our trip on the boardwalk, spotted another bird nest structure, it's the Eagle Pod!

There are five pods around here! So we had to find all of them to complete our journey!

No one was there besides us that day, maybe because of the gloomy weather, so we enjoyed our moments watching the sea, the waves and shouted all we want!

And then the dark clouds came and chased us away from the sea! But I love the sea view that day! Artistic view!

Walking on the pebble Coastal Trail after the boardwalk!

Experience the sights of the nature reserve up close.

Learn more about the common mangrove tree species! "It is not easy to be a mangrove tree! Mangrove trees have to survive tidal flooding by salt water twice a day, in anaerobic soil that is poor in oxygen. They also have to deal with violent storms that hit the coasts."

Found another pod, it's the Kingfisher pod!

Right next to it is the fourth pod, the Mudskipper pod!

I really love these pods!!!

Followed our trail to the Mudflats!!! Crossed the balancing bridge to get up close with the muddy habitat.

During the low tide, we could spot mudskippers and living things under the mud just by standing on the mudflats. The mud stench was not so pleasant though!

Finally reached the last pod, it's the Dragonfly Pod!!! Mission completed!

We walked all the way to the old Sungei Buloh entrance! There's usually no taxis at this area, so we had to take a shuttle bus to the Kranji MRT station! It costs $3 per person and the last bus departs at 6:50 pm.
