It was a beautiful sunny winter’s day today; perfect sea conditions. I spotted the cormorants in their thousands, which is always a sign that fish are running. At the nearby fishing slip the boats were hauling out and sure enough they had caught good hauls. It’s also time for our visitors from the Antarctic to arrive – the Southern Right whales. It’s an awesome sight to see them in the Bay. Their sheer bulk is impressive, especially when they leap about doing gymnastic displays.
