I did a search in our blog and the last visit to Venus Drive was in October 2015! It was our trip #17 led by Anthony Quek. Fast forward two years later, this same location is now called Windsor Nature Park however, our playground namely Venus Loop remains unchanged and untouched.
The park was opened by National Parks Board (NParks) on Saturday 22 April, with three new trails including Drongo trail, Hanguana Trail and Squirrel Trail. Instead of walking on the muddy ground, especially when it rains the night before, visitors can now walk on the boardwalk.
All the participants gathered around at 730am for a quick briefing on the trail etiquettes (Do’s and Dont’s) before we explore the renovated park. We did not remain on the boardwalk for long and quickly moved on to our macro photography site at Venus Loop. We were delighted to still see a rich habitat of wildlife.
A marsh habitat was created using the natural terrain to provide an additional wetland habitat for the biodiversity. Here, a rich diversity of dragonflies can be seen.
A group of nature park enthusiast led by an English-speaking female guide had gathered around us. The guide was explaining to them about the facts and habitat information on St Andrew’s Cross Spider.
The were also looking for the resident Malayan Colugo which they finally caught a glimpse of this beauty resting on the tree bark.
The trip ended in the late morning as it started to rain. A few participants left us a little earlier to have breakfast with their loved ones. If you have missed our outing, do remember to join us next time.
Participants: Catherine, David Wong, KT Sia, Dion, Henry Tan, Latish, Kyaw Htay, Wong Heng Meng, Allan Lee, Anthony Quek, Endy and Sharon S. Lim (trip leader).
