On Friday afternoon, sat in the Bonner (lab where I work) we got a message over the radio (we all use VHF radios on base to communicate as well as 'stentophones' (or "bing-bongs") which are located on the walls at convenient places inside the main buildings, you can call a specific stentophone or do a general 'bing-bong' to give a message out to everyone. It's only relatively recently that the base has had phones in offices) that there were Orca (Killer Whales) in Ryder Bay. So we ran down to the wharf and were lucky enough to spot 6 beautiful whales swimming by some 300m off the wharf. Managed to get a cool photo of a mother and her calf. Saturday we saw 3 humpback whales, didn't have my camera with me, but was brilliant to see.
