Surf Diatoms on Beach Four

A small Diatom bloom on Beach Four today (3/1/11) .
Beach Four has signs of undercutting of the foredune. The access path is very steep due to slumping of the dune it passes.
I noted one dead Little Penguin lying on the dunes.
We surveyed the Pipi shells on the beach for a chipped ratio of 10 out of 11 shells. The smallest shell being from a sexually immature juvenile individual approximately 8-9 months old.
