It’s Hot in Melbourne

By Jeremy Meltingtallow

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.

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.
