Seawatch, 15 October 2015

The sulids party continued today at the Avalon Seawatch. Yesterday's adult Brown Booby was followed up today by a 1st cycle MASKED BOOBY that spent about 10 minutes fishing in front of the count location today before drifting southwards. This is a first count record (only the 2nd record for NJ) and part of what has been a great rarity run at the Seawatch, no doubt in part to a fortnight long nor'easter and Hurricane Joaquin in late September.
