Dee Why Beach in Winter

July 24, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

After our dog arrived from the US via Melbourne on a 10-day journey, we owed him some nice walks allowing him to explore his new surroundings. We headed to Dee Why Beech which is quite different at this time of the year compared to the summer. The dog had a lot of fun in the salt water and the lagoon.

We also observed Rainbow Lorikeets and an Eastern Great Egret.

On our way back we saw several Tectocoris diophthalmus, commonly known as the Hibiscus Harlequin Bug or Cotton Harlequin Bug. These convex-shaped bugs have a brightly coloured metallic sheen and can grow to about 20 mm.

The strong waves during the winter months are enjoyed by the surfers.
