Southern Rights in Flinders Bay

August is definitely the month of the Southern Right Whale! A celebration of new babies being born and getting to spend time with one of the most remarkable and charismatic characters in the whale world. Little Colourpatch has grown so quickly and was very curious today swimming right up to say hello while one of the second mother and calf pods enjoyed a bit of twisting and turning play on their Thursday morning.

The local Bottlenose Dolphin pod came over to say high today and everyone enjoyed their friendly company. Having spent their time earlier in the morning busily hunting it seemed like everyone had a good feed and were enjoying a quick relax before continuing their foraging again… this pattern will be repeated many times throughout the day as there are many mouths to feed in this ever growing family pod!
