Fin Whales and Porpoise Moms in the Islands

Hey Art, sorry it's been so long since I have sent an update from Quoddy Link, the tourists have all shown up since the sun has been shining! 

Just wanted to let you know we had a fin whale today at the end of the flood in the Happy Hunting Ground between Nubble and White Island and on the ebb we have had a few different fins off the mouth of Head Harbour Passage. 

The porpoise numbers are great in the Passage and we are seeing quite a few cow/calf pairs.  There are great numbers of Bonaparte's gulls, I haven't seen the phalaropes in about a week.

That's all for now,
