Seawatch, 22 December 2015

It was a wet and windy day to close out the 2015 Avalon Seawatch season. Overall, there were 167 species (+14 additional taxa) spotted between September and December from the new location. A huge thank you to everyone who visited and volunteered their time--the count wouldn't be the same without you. Be sure to check out the 2016 Peregrine Observer for official count numbers and a full write-up of the season. Until next year!
