Darwin 200 day 11: diving off Lochaline

Rohan, Kerry and Stewart brought up some starfish from a 30 m dive for us to look at.

Mathasterias is heavily armoured and it apparently, it is successful as a strategy, as not many things eat it!

Of course, they all returned to the rocks they came from…

Just as we weigh anchor, one of nature’s spectacles: sprats driven by makarel to the surface where they are also tested upon by gulls.
