It’s Hot in Melbourne


We’ve had a couple of days over 30 degrees C and today was predicted to get to 40 (it’s 38 degrees as I write this at 3.26pm). Hot evenings means a busy St Kilda Pier and it is good that we have a lot of guides to look after the penguins this year.

Penguin guides (including me) are in high vis vests.

It’s also a tough time for bees and after noticing that they were drinking from Billie’s rainwater bowl, we topped it up to keep them from drowning. They are coming in to our bee bar in a steady stream, three or four at a time.

The popsicle life raft didn't work, so we just keep this filled to the brim so that the bees don't drown.
