Seastar Removal II

The little buggers came back, in force. There were loads out there today, as the water has cooled down a lot (ice-cream headache territory for snorkelers). When I arrived, there was a little penguin swimming around catching the sprats near the shore. He looked kind of mottled and apparently didn’t moult properly, so will be a goner. Nature’s a bastard.
