Eagle View, travelling to Wirrina Cove and off the Coast, South Australia.

Back out to sea with Ian and a Possom walk with Deb later.
Australia, Day Eighty Two.

Wrasse species.
Ian and I headed down to the Coast at Wirrina where we launched the boat and went out for a really nice days fishing which I enjoyed greatly again. Whilst we were out there we caught several King George whiting (Sillaginodes punctatus), a few Red Mullet (Upeneus sundaicus) as well as a few other species.
Bird wise we picked up 3 Peregrine Falcons (Falco peregrinus) along the cliffs, as well as Nankeen Kestrel (Falco cenchroides), Pacific (Larus pacificus) and Silver Gull (Chroicocephalus novaehollandiae),  Great Crested Tern (Thalasseus bergii) and Pied Cormorant (Phalacrocorax varius).

Once we got back and it was dark Deb and I went for a walk up the hill with head tourches looking for Possoms, I didn't take my camera unfortunately as both of the Possoms we saw, a Brush Tailed (Trichosurus vulpecula) and a Ringtail Possum (Pseudocheirus peregrinus) posed brilliantly for us, typical.
