Students snorkelling with sea lions

Student snorkelling with Sea Lions

This week I am lucky to have the company of some great students from Pearson College. Along with the privilege of living out here for a week, they are helping me with some of the maintenance duties and sharing some adventures. Unfortunately for them the sea lions have all moved to their side of the island and are surrounding their house, making for some noisy nights! But they have front row seats to a spectacle that is better than any TV show.

These days birds are showing up in winter plumage and look different from when they passed through in the spring.

We’ll have an animal census for you in just a couple of days… stay tuned.
