August 4th mourning to Seal Island
some pictures from august fourth.
the throughly competent great black-baked gull
lots of porpoise out there, plenty of fish too.
Porpoise under water shot, right under the boat
the Felonius Skua, long wings, little head

Common Murre at Seal Island
last years puffin, dark cheek small bill, a few show up later in the season.
