Banks Island, Canada - Expanded Ranges. The Inuit now regularly see species common much further south that previously were never seen on the island, such as robins and barn swallows. Thunder and lightning, never before recorded in Inuit oral history, have also been reported.
This was a fantastic talk by Vic Semeniuk covering the old beach and dune surfaces visible at Cottesloe. I had not heard of the importance of freshwater seepage in the formation of what I have always assumed were purely wave cut platforms.
Pictured below is a trowel with bubbles formed at the upper end of the swash zone(?). In the pinkish cream areas below the same bubble structures can be seen preserved in limestone. I wish I had been to the talk the night before.
