On our 10am trip the weather was suitable to head offshore to search and the bird life out there is amazing. We saw shearwaters (sooty, greater and manx), puffins, razorbills and storm petrels. And on both trips the tide was plenty low enough to spend some time with seals who were hauled out at Splitting Knife.

We have also been spending some time at Whitehorse Island, it's still nesting season for many seabirds and there is lots to see. If you want to learn more about the birds we see on our trips please check out Quoddy Link Birds, a new blog that Nick is taking care of this season!!
