In other news the divers went out in the bay today and apparently they saw some really cool stuff, including a whole raft of animals which are usually only found at 200-300m depths, these guys were hanging out around 1-4m deep. So there's defiantly some new stuff going on down there, new to science, I'm guessing that the creatures themselves have been doing it all for quite a while.
I also heard rumours that some birds have been caught and we're going to have a look at their stomach contents to see what they've been eating. But these are still rumours, I'll try and substantiate them tomorrow!
And last but not least, the light environment was really interesting today. It was incredibly bright (relatively speaking, my sunglasses are still in their case) this morning with a beautiful "sunrise". This was followed by an incredibly sudden drop of the sun and pitch blackness. The kind of dark where you can't see your hand in-front of you, though you can see some amazing stars. And a few hours later the full moon rose. This all happened within a matter of hours, and I think it must have a pretty amazing impact on the creatures living here to have such different light environments within such short periods of time. I know I couldn't have predicted what was going to happen, maybe the animals can.. who knows.
Either way, it was a pretty exciting and exhausting day!
