Big Shark!  saw this basking shark N of Three Fathom ledge.
This shark turned around and passed under the transom, we got a good look at the wide front end it looked to me like a big catfish
this fish was 20' longish
I saw another near the same area a couple days later, 
Razorbill and chick,
It appears that this loon may have pierced this flounder, I am not sure that was the case
Son of a gun
the doe known as black face, she had twins this year.
