Decapitated penguin suggests fox attack
Although gruesome, this decapitated penguin -- found tangled in seaweed on 'our' beach -- suggests the work of a fox and brings to mind the excellent work done by the Phillip Island Nature Park Rangers in reducing the number of foxes on the island. It's estimated that between 20 to 30 foxes remain.
Other finds today included a crab, an elephant shark egg case and a couple of sea urchins (affectionately referred to as sea eggs by islanders).
