Sunfish in Sunshine

As we sailed back from Spain last week the horrendous seas caused by the tail end of Hurricane Henri started to quell. Looking over the edge of the deck rail I reckon we saw around 20+ Sunfish. This one had just the tip of one fin poking out of the waves.

A Dead Fish and a Lively Weasel

A beached Sunfish at Titchwell the other week had me combing the tideline for the corpse. I had been requested to take samples for DNA analysis so I was keen to photograph it, measure it and package up samples. The tide had taken it or the sand had covered it so I never did get to play with my scalpel and collection jar.

Consolation came in the form of a rather wick mustelid running down the path to the sea. Short tail, small size and a wiggly demarcation between the brown back and white belly told me it was a Weasel. Always nice to see.
