This morning I counted over 200 cormorants on the South Rocks and saw a pair of Harlequin ducks by the jetty.
The female elephant 6360 went back in the water before noon. Misery was near the centre of the island at sunset.
I went off island to campus around noon. I brought some scientific instruments back to campus and went into Langford to pick up plumbing parts and other supplies. Erik worked on the whaler’s fuel line over the afternoon and got it fixed up. I got back out to the island as the sun was setting on the lowest tide I have ever landed on out here, the boat ramp was longer than usual.
