Australian Wildlife

I love the Australian road signs, particularly the wildlife ones… I’m not too sure what the wading bird is… If you have any ideas then please leave a comment below. Tiliqua rugosa – Bobtail or Western Shingleback Skink. This was a very odd creature and I almost ran over it on the dirt road as […]

Nature Walk – The Andaman Hotel – Langkawi, Malaysia

On thing the Andaman Hotel, Langkawi offers every morning at 8 am is a nature walk. When I first read about it in the hotel newsletter I assumed that the walk went offsite – I was wrong. The 60 – 90 minute walk is entirely within the grounds of the hotel, and it was surprising […]

Another visit to Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore

Yep, another trip over to the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore – I just can’t seem to keep away from the place since I first found it earlier this year. I still can’t believe the diversity of wildlife I see in the place, that it is in Singapore, and that it is free! FourSquare: Sungei […]

Admiralty Park, Woodlands, Singapore

Admiralty Park, Woodlands, Singapore is a mixture of urban park and nature reserve. Unlike the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve the roar of traffic very noticeable, however, there does still seem to be a lot of birds present. One thing that amuse me was the number of signs at the entrance to the park. Not only […]

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore – 2 of 2

Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve in Singapore is one of my favourite ways to spend time on Singapore island. The nature reserve is very close to the Johor – Singapore Causeway, and hence, once you’ve managed to get into Singapore is fairly easy to get to. I did manage to see a number of Golden Orb […]

A stroll in a local park, Johor Bahru, Malaysia

Often I will travel miles to see animals, wildlife and views, and some times you can find it right on your doorstep. This afternoon I went for a short walk in my local park. I took my camera just in case I saw anything of interest, and I got some great shots. First thing I […]

Dusky Leaf Monkeys – Kampong Johor Lama, 81900 Kota Tinggi, Johor, Malaysia

Now Dusky Leaf Monkeys (Trachypithecus obscurus), as there name implies, are difficult to find as they are amazingly shy. In two years of travelling around Malaysia I had only seen them twice before, and only in groups of 4, so I was very surprised when I drove down the road near Kampong Johor Lama, 81900 […]

Tanjung Piai National Park, Tanjung Piai, 82300 Kukup, Johor, Malaysia – part 4 of 4

The great thing about Tanjung Piai National Park is if you take your time to look, and you are patient, there is a lot to see. Below is a Berongan (Telescopium telescopium), which is so called because it look like a telescope (can’t see that myself!). The Berongan is edible. I liked this particular Berongan […]
