Juvenile Dusky Whalers have once again been sighted in the Shelly Beach/Fairy Bower area of Sydney. Following on from sightings in 2004, 2007, 2008 and 2009, Gaetan Guilhon emailed to say that he had filmed juveniles in the same area on 28 May 2011. View his embedded video below.
The Queen's Birthday long-weekend saw huge crowds visit the Museum. We thank everyone for coming out in such blustery and wintery weather. We especially thank one visitor for bringing his mum to his favourite place.
Returning to work after three weeks on fieldwork is not always easy. Despite the excellent efforts of Amanda and Sally, there were many emails to answer and plenty of jobs that had to be done. I have added a number of images and two movies in a feeble attempt to relive the Kermadec experience.
