Seawatch, 29 September 2015

Tuesday goes down as the slowest day Tom Reed has ever experienced in the 3+ seasons he has counted at Seawatch. Eastern winds continued to create large swells without bringing large numbers of migrants towards shore. Worth noting was the significant movement of Royal Terns.
