Seawatch, 23 September 2015

It was a slow second day up in Avalon for the Seawatch. Strong eastern winds can usually bring us some great seabirds but it's still early in the season. Highlights include the first Northern Gannet of the season as well as a couple thousand Tree Swallows hanging out on the beach and dunes.
