Poor conditions at Flinders meant that we relocated to Blairgowrie for this weekend's dive, where there were loads of divers participating in the Great Victorian Fish Count.

Although we spent a lot of time examining pylons we only spotted a Verco's Nudibranch. There were large schools of small fish mid-way along the pier, and further out there were quite a few Stingarees resting under the erosion matting. A few Moonlighters and Silver Sweep were also found in the gaps under the matting, but there wasn't really all that much that was remarkable in terms of sea life. The beams of light playing over the sides of the pier were quite spectacular.

Kirsty was using the old GoPro Hero4, and used her footage from this dive to make her own video record of the dive.
