Port Phillip Bay
All of these photos were taken by Glenn. I’m pretty sure he’d love to return at different points throughout the nesting season.
Now to see if he’d be interesting in going to Portland… 😉
Great views of the birds on the nests. I also saw a couple of black faced cormorants.
Yesterday, Glenn and I went Queenscliff to do the marine biology cruise. This is normally targeted at children, but I enjoy doing it as it is an affordable (and disability friendly) way of learning more about marine life.
Glenn isn’t a marine life aficionado like multiple family members. He’s passionate about larger wildlife such as birds and mammals. I pitched it as a way for him to explore Port Phillip Bay and get photos of the seals and gannets. I did have an ulterior motive: I was hoping to find some interesting marine life and convert him to a rockpooler. Seeing the specimens in clear water is a great way to get a closer look and discover new species.
Alas, no-one on the boat really looked for any marine life in the containers. We were too busy getting saturated 🙂
This trip was with dad instead of Seth. I sat back more so the kids on the cruise could get more out of it. We were told most of the names, however I didn’t take proper notes.
