Hi all,
Yesterday on another beach near the Fiordland Penguin site (near Port Fairy
in Vic) there was also a sub-adult male Southern Elephant Seal hauled out on
the shore and moulting. Apparently it has been moving along the coast for
the last two or three days. SES's don't turn up in Vic very often so if
anyone's heading that way it would be worth keeping an eye open for this one
as well. Sure seals don't have feathers but a 3 to 3.5m mammal is pretty
