This would be my first time visiting this place. Coincidently, the Labrador Nature & Coastal Walk was opened the day before, which means that I could take the boardwalk after alighting from Labrador Park train station to go to the Reserve.
The highlight of this trip was the addition of 7 new plants to my pictorial library, a really good start for the New Year. However, there was a little price to pay to get the pictures. While attempting to get close to one of the plants, my shoes had to bear the blunt of my ambition. The ground was especially soggy at one spot.
None of the 7 newly found plants were originated from the natural vegetation. They were likely being planted by the National Park Board at some point in the past. Below were the plant pictures with links to the respective photo if you are interested to see more features of each one.
A slight disappointment was that the Reserve itself did not offer me any new plants. Probably, I had not yet covered the entire place. In fact, most of my pictures were taken around the Reserve instead of in the forested area.
There were few creatures seen though I did spot a common snake, the Oriental Whip Snake (Ahaetulla prasina). This snake was so common that I had even seen it a few times at the park near my place.
There were plenty of historical remains on exhibition in the area but these were not my main interest. I will have to go back another time to explore the remaining areas that I missed out this time round though I suspected that I might have already covered most of the ground.
Below are selected photos from this trip arranged according to the sequence that they were taken. There is a text link under the photo that will direct you to more photos of the same species if they are available in my website.
