Whale bones While one group visited Port Lockroy, the other one went ashore at nearby Jougla Point, a rocky outcrop at the northwest end of Weinke Island. There used to be an old land based whaling station there and numerous whale bones litter the shore. Blue Whale SkeletonSome of the naturalists have reconstructed the skeleton of a Blue Whale from the various whale bones laying around. Our expedition leader, Tom Ritchie, used the opportunity to give us an interesting anatomy lesson on whales.

blue-eyed shagsBlue-eyed shags and gentoo penguins were seen nesting together in the mud. We watched as the shag parents returned to their nest, greeted each other and fed their chick.
