30 May, 1911

Spent the day at my physiological investigations concerning sledging rations.

Atkinson found another sea leopard at the tide crack; this proved to be a crab-eater, young and very active. In contrast to the one of yesterday, this was noisy indeed. Here he is with his mouth propped open.

It was beautifully calm and comparatively warm. It was good to hear the gay chatter and laughter of men out on the ice, and to see ponies and their leaders coming out of the gloom to add liveliness to the scene.

Another interesting this today was that Wilson and Bowers spotted a high cirrus cloud lit by sunlight. The sun is 9 degrees below the horizon at present.
