North East Herald Cay - Hermit Crab Daily Migration

Each morning the beach at North East Herald Cay was subjected to an invasion of Hermit Crabs on their daily migration from the sea to the shady undergrowth of the small scrubs that lined the island.

The crabs were a funny bunch of characters - most were rather shy, but the larger ones tended to be a lot braver and in some cases even willing to engage strange creatures with cameras!

One of the strangest was a fellow we called Bluey. He was clearly innovative, but hopefully his current arrangement is only temporary and not a sign of the future...

No matter what house the Hermit Crabs had choosen all were welcome at the final resting place of their daily mirgation...
