Continuing my trip around the habited areas:
At the Kampong, this inquisitive cat pounced on me. There are many tame and feral cats on the island, and like many introduced species, they threatens the existing wildlife. Cats in this case prey on nesting birds and in some nesting grounds, the mortality rate of newly hatched chicks is 100% (no survivors!)
This track lies between the only traffic lights on the island (wide enough for only 1 vehicle, this allows for 2 way traffic without the need for unnecessary reversing). This track was constructed off the cliff-face after WWII
There are more pictures at my gallery here.
Will update more when I can.. the birds and the erm.. spiders 😛
