Sungei Buloh, Singapore’s very first and only, Wetland Nature Reserve opened on the 6th of December 1993.
It is a haven for migrating birds and a favorite spot for Birdwatchers during the migrating season.
It is only fitting that we place our very first cache here, as one of the creators of this cache is a fond birdwatcher.
Our cache will take you on an adventure around Sungei Buloh, where you may either just focus on completing this cache, or enjoy watching the birds along the way. (Oh yes, and ‘Beware of the crocodiles!’)
The Globetrotting Bebbis would be thrilled if you mention any of your bird sightings and other wildlife observations when you log your visit.
Note: The cache container is only big enough to hold a log stip, so bring your own pen!
The final coordinates have been changed and the original fragile container has been replaced. Hoping this cache will not disappear so easily from the new location..
The cache can only be accessed from 7.30am to 7.00pm
The published coordinates, take you to the entrance where your Birding adventure begins.
Collect a park map at the entrance, you will need it along the way to find the clues.
Make your way to the ‘Main Hide 1A’. Here, answer the following questions:
1. The average size of the following birds are:
A = Size of White-throated Kingfisher
B = Size of Greater Sandplover
C = Size of Little Heron
2. Find the plate: Learn to Birdwatch. How many Tips are given on this plate:
D = Number of tips given
Now make your way to the Aerie, climb up to the top platform and find Plate: Guide to Common Birds on Mudflats of Sungai Buloh. Answer the following question:
3. How many species of Heron can you find on this plate?
E = Number of Heron Species on the plate
From here, go to Observation Hide 1C and find the Plate about Sandpipers.
4. How many different species of Sandpipers are listed to be found in the park?
F = Number of Sandpiper species found in the park.
Finally, still at Hide 1C, find the menu for the “Mudflat Café – for shorebirds only.”
5. How many dishes can you find on its menu? Note: Count the individual dishes, not the food groups!
G = number of dishes found on Mudflat Café menu
Now that you have found all of the necessary clues, Solve the following equations:
q = B + E
r = (G - E) x F
s= F - D
x = C - E
y = F – D
z = F + (A x D)
The final coordinates are at: N 01˚ q.rs E 103˚ x.yz
