The Safari has had a better day today out watching for whales and dolphins with enthusiastic volunteers followed by a great afternoon on the beach with more young families. Exactly what a warm summer's day is for. We didn't find a lot for the whale watchers but two, possibly three, Grey Seals were the star attraction. A flock of about 10 Black Tailed Godwits (P2 #70) flew by which at the time we didn't realise was a patch year bird. It seems to have been a long time since we opening the birding year spreadsheet.
Our young families found lots of great stuff including the only and only Lonely George Blackpool Limpet - it's the only one we've got!

|A chunk of Coconut shell - the big question is from where? The Coconut shy stall at a local summer fete, a kitchen via a fruit & veg shop or the Caribbean? We know which we'd like it to be!|
Walking back to Base Camp a moth flew past us and settled in view - they never do that. Udea prunalis thanks to GJ on FB - ain't this social media stuff great; provided you use it in the right way for the right reasons.
Great sky this evening, a real beaut, reminds us of a line in a film spoken by Burt Lancaster
Where to next? Land Rover in sick bay tomorrow so no early Patch 2 wacth again but at lunchtime there's a chance we may be 'starring' in a small role on BBC TV to be aired later in the day.
In the meantime let us know how blue the sky is in your outback.
