About the cover
Casey Station Leader, Rebecca Jeffcoat, took this photo of a late-winter campsite near Robbo's Hut, overlooking Odbert Island, during a visit to the island to undertake maintenance of seabird nesting cameras. She used a Canon 6D EOS Mk II (ISO 400, f10, 1/160 sec). Rebecca is on secondment from the Royal Australian Navy. She previously visited Antarctica on a resupply voyage and a Station Leader familiarisation trip.
