Another team of dedicated volunteers turned up for an early morning survey of the mudflats at Changi Creek.
Thanks to Rene Ong, we get a glimpse of what happened. It sure was a glorious blue-sky day!

This little goby may be a new species. New not just to Singapore, but to science! This find highlights the importance of our efforts at the Mega Marine Survey!
It also shows that even boring, similar-looking animals might be entirely different species! Here's more about how gobies are identified, and why it is important to take the specimen. Photos are not enough to identify many kinds of marine life.
