Sentosa Butterfly Survey

Postby plain tiger » Tue Jan 26, 2010 11:56 am

Hi all,
BIG is planning to continue with survey #2 this Saturday morning at Sentosa, and want to invite all you knowledgeable buttheads, er.. I mean butterfly enthusiasts to come and meet up, the more the merrier !
We've not met one another so is a good time.
If you are planning to drive, kindly give your name (not Avatar name) and car plate numbers to me or Gan, who will arrange with the Sentosa repr to forward you the passes via email.
Richard, CmBirdwing, Fujis, anyone else not mentioned..what are you waiting for ! (KC you too !)
The survey will be ongoing till June, around 4-5 times, say once a month, either Sat or Sun I will let you all know the schedule later, taking turns to do so will help.
Last week we visited Serapong forest area..here are some photos to facinate your imagination.
Steven

I have already told Gan I'm available. In fact years ago I have been shooting butterflies there, long before they even started buiding the IR projects. Most butterflies are found along Palawan Beach and along Soloso Beach just before the bicyclye station, there use to be a colony of Silver Forget-me-not. the forested area is not so rich except for a small area near the top of Impiah Hill. The colony of Deudorix elioti (Eliot's Cornelian) was destroyed with the building of the slide car and the sky trek.

Dear CK and Richard,
Thks for your response, take it this is the final list less KC this round.
KC, if you have not already submitted your car IU for future surveys to join us, please submit to Justin.
Next survey scheduled for 6th Feb Sat, so soon this so before Chinese New Year, but more so before the mad rush when the IR opens. Then next will tentatively be scheduled for 20th Mar (Sunday), subject to change.
Can you confirm if Wang Bek needs a ride into Sentosa, will call you later.
Cheers,
Steven

Wang Peck and myself don't drive. We can meet you there. Just let me know when and where is the starting point. If you plan to recce the beach, I suggest we meet at the bus station situated above the carpark of the Beach Station. There we can use the beach train to get to Pahlawan Beach.
