Species List: Shelly Beach, Caloundra, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, 24-04-2016

4 species sighted at Shelly Beach intertidal, Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

Julie and Terry revisited Shelly Beach to search the tidal pools for an hour.  The winds have picked up to over 20 knots and the beach is quite exposed to southerly's making searching in pools anything over 50 mm deep very difficult.  However, given the effort we were quite pleased with the finds.
