………When the East Australian Current (EAC) brings fish from there to Manly. This beautiful adult Clown triggerfish has been hanging around Fairy Bower (towards Manly) for several weeks now and I finally found it today.
Normally found in much warmer waters it is a very rare visitor indeed, the last one caught by a spearfisher only a couple of years ago.
There were dozens of dusky whalers cruising around too
And…..some swimmers described to me a fish that sounded very like a colourful pink and yellow dottyback – need to look for that one again
