Just imagine being two inches tall, opening your eyes, turning on your torch and coming face to face with …
Assuming you are still with me you’d quickly become entranced by those amazing blue-green opalesque eyes and what at first seemed ugly becomes beautiful.
You can spot a gurnard perch from quite a distance at night by those incredible eyes. Just scan your torch back and forth anywhere under Edithburgh Jetty and before you know it you too will be experiencing being face to face with this beautiful creature.
