2014 has started very nicely with 100% common dolphin and bottlenose dolphin, and a kick start of the baleen whale season with a fin whale. The crew was extremely happy to get this first taste of spring after the winter. Not only have we enjoyed the cetaceans this month, we have seen plenty of birds, the ocean has been full of black-legged kittiwakes, great skuas, and a few early Cory's shearwaters. Along the coast, the biologists have also seen lots of other birds such as egrets, herons, ruddy turnstones and other waders. Lets see what spring will bring us!
