30 knt. winds, driving rain and constant spray!

Good Evening
TEMPERATURE: Max, 10.9 C  Min. 7.0 C  Reset 8.0 C – Rain = 2.8 mm
MARINE LIFE: 1 mature, and 2 immature Bald Eagles arrived as usual at first light but stayed only until just after 10:30 am- maybe they didn’t like the 30 knt. winds, driving rain and constant spray! The rest of the birds were not too active either and for the most part huddled down stoically, with their beaks into the wind and rain. I always feel sorry for the birds when the weather is so nasty.Only the 2 large bull Elephant Seals hauled out on the ramp today – there was a little question of who had rights to the boat ramp today when Mike went down to get the sea water sample- the large bull elephant seals were not happy to be disturbed but at least tolerated the human ‘interaction’ since it was brief ! and careful !!
