Purse Crab

Saturday March 4th

 Today I checked out Bunche Beach, arriving at day break, having just left work. Made a brief check at the Mangrove Cuckoo spot. Not seeing or hearing anything moved onto the beach. The tide was at a low stage and a nice mix of shore birds,waders, gulls and terns were present.

Purse Crab

Spotted a very large live Whelk and a very tiny crab I've never encountered before. A google search helped in identifying the crab as a Mottled Purse Crab. A very strange looking creature
