Today on my day off I jumped aboard a fishing boat going to Northeast Bank. For those that don't know where that is it is 30 miles south of Seal Cove Grand Manan.A brief summary of birds follows,
Greater Shearwater 400-many
Wilsons Storm Petrel 250
Leaches Storm Petrel 1200-1500(cons) have never seen anywhere this many. Flocks of petrels resting on the water would take to the air and would all be Leaches.
15 Humpback Whales
Not a bad day for a day off.
