Avalon Seawatch, 12 November 2016

     The morning started with temperatures just below freezing. The 30 degree air warmed with the abundant sunshine to 41 degrees by midday and the North West wind remained relatively calm. There was a great flight of Red Throated Loons in the afternoon and Scoters flew at all distances on many different flight patterns. Today's count brought our season total to 510 thousand birds!
