The Labour Day holiday saw Kirsty and me down at Flinders for an early dive. When we arrived a dive school had just put a class in the water, which didn't help with the visibility at all! A couple of large Smooth Rays and an Eagle Ray were patrolling the pier today. We only saw a few Cowfish, and just one Weedy Seadragon, along with a couple of Magpie Perches and Old Wives. A Hermit Crab appeared to have just settled in to a new shell, and a group of Rockpool Shrimp have taken up residence in the engine block. The Tasmanian Blennie is also still there. There were several groups of very small Bullseyes - previously I've seen them higher up the pylons, but these were all concentrated near the bottom today.
