In talking with the naturalist on board, birds have been absent on most trips. Not only were birds absent, whales were a little hard to find as we had to go to the outer side of Race Point in Provincetwon.
Only two whales were spotted on this trip. One Minke and one Finback.
As for birds, only TWO Shearwaters were seen, one Great and one long distant Manx. Storm-petrel numbers were also way down. This was slowest trip in some time. Thanks to all who participated.
Here is an initial summary of birds seen. Glenn d'Entremont may have some updated numbers.
|Great Blue Heron||1|
|Great Black-backed Gull||15|
