Institute spokesman Jeff Weir says scientists are unsure what has caused the change in their migration pattern.
He says they also saw the animals competing for the first time off Mount Martha and Mornington.

Hopefully they'll figure it out and it won't be more fodder for the doomsayers... although judging by the preferred reporting model we have been seeing...
