31 Aug (Sat): Butterfly Walk to Bukit Panjang Park and Forest

Open to the Public

Come appreciate the butterflies at Bukit Panjang Park and adjacent forest patch with Amy and KC Tsang (HP: 9817-5549). It is close to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and remains rich in forest butterflies. Recent sightings here include forest species such as Royal Assyrian, Horsfield Baron, Knight, Branded Imperial, Common Lascar and the fascinating Bigg's Brownie butterflies, which often feed together with ants on 'honey dew' exuded by aphids. The area’s grassland and scrubland have also yielded attractive butterflies like the Pea Blue and Peacock Pansy. As the construction of new condominiums continues close by, it is hoped that this forest patch remains intact.

Time: 9.30am
Venue: Meet the base of Block 201 Petir Road, near the start of a footpath which goes uphill towards Bukit Panjang Park.
