Species List Caloundra Intertidal 25/26-04-2010

Other commitments prevented us from diving over the weekend but we did manage to fit in a few hours looking under rocks on Sunday and Monday. We had not had any luck in previous weeks, but with the slightly cooler water and, perhaps, a few days without rain things seems to be improving slightly. Aside from the couple of species of nudibranch seen on each day, we were very pleased to find a Snowflake Moray in a rock pool on Kings Beach on Sunday and a Blue Ring Octopus in a rock pool at Moffats Beach on Monday.
