Three more beach shell surveys last Sunday (Rosebud, Capel Sound and Safety Beach) and the project just gets more fascinating. But the highlight of my week was receiving a CD of photos in the mail from young Nathan of North Sunshine.
He and his folks had surveyed McCrae Beach a couple of weeks ago and filled out the sheet perfectly. I was SSSOOOO HAPPY to see the survey method works… and that people would actually go to the trouble of mailing the results to me.
Nathan’s a natural at finding rare shells. He found a paper nautilus when I met him at Dromana in January 09. Now he’s followed up with this one….
I haven’t come across one of these on any of the 25 other beaches surveyed so far.
Dunno what it’s called. Maybe someone out there has the answer?
