Do join us this March holidays for an outing to one of the loveliest natural shores in Singapore. Chek Jawa is located on the north-eastern corner of Pulau Ubin. Even though this is a boardwalk trip, there will still be plenty to see. On most days, we see the fiddler crabs on the shore, tree-climbing crabs in the mangroves, mudskippers, monitor lizards, weaver ants, the list goes on. At our last trip in February, we were treated to a sighting of jungle fowl. These are the ancestors of domesticated chickens. The male jungle fowl have colourful plumage and can fly short distances.
