25th September 1832

Bahia Blanca
The Schooner has been taken to the Creek. Mr Wickham & a party of men have erected tents on shore & are living there during the refit of the vessel. I accompanied the little settlement & whilst they were rigging the tents I walked to Punta alta & again obtained several fossils. I came quite close to an Ostrich on her nest; but did not see her till she rose up & with her long legs stretched across the country.
