The water is murky, the shore is next to busy shipping. And yet, the rocky shore is alive with colourful marine life!
We last visited in July 2017. It was nice to see that the sponges remained abundant, in various kinds and colours.July 2017 when we saw many more sea fans.
Haddon's carpet anemones, most seemed alright. I also saw patches of Posy anemones, lots of Lined bead anemones, and Banded bead anemones of various kinds.
Pink flowery soft corals, Ball flowery soft corals as well as Knobbly soft corals. There were small patches of Zebra hard coral. And also some Stinging hydroids.
Ball-tip corallimorphs in many different bright colours!
feather stars, a few large Biscuit sea stars and some Orange sea cucumbers and many Sponge synaptid sea cucumbers.
Bryozoans and Ascidians. I saw many Thumbs up ascidians and Yellow clustered ascidians. There were many Onyx cowries too.
