Magpies with a birds eye view of the Pasha Bulkar
It is hoped to move this stranded cargo ship on high tide possibly Thursday. Tides are reaching their maxium height soon.
It is believed that the attached ropes are for towing out by tugs and there are two anchor points against which it will winch itself out.
Gear for the containment of oil is assembled near the stone monument - Macquarie's Pier.
As it is, the oil /fuel on the ship has been pumped into its higher tanks. They say it is too risky to use hoses and pump it ashore.
The ship has buckled in the centre. Quite a task is ahead.
The signs say keep left.
Seagulls taking it easy
