August 9, Matinicus Rock, Puffins, Eagles, evidence of peregrines.

August 9,  trip to pick up the team on Matinicus Rock and take them to Rockland.

 as usual there was a gang of Puffins paddling round the anchorage these two were quite tame to curious

note the bow wave this bird is pushing,

Due to a last minute shuffling of days, I arrived to collect the team of observers 24 hours earlier than expected, despite that they gamely hustled and got ready fast, meanwhile I got a chance to be ashore for a spell and got some pics of Puffins lugging in feed.

They were quite busy.  even at midday,

Arctic tern head,  probably a peregrine ate it.

On the way back to Vinalhaven from Rockland, there was a pair of eagles preforming,

they were flying around together being very conspicuous,
Great blue heron, double crested cormorant,  Talbot's Island.
