Good Evening
TEMPERATURE: Max. 10.3C  Min. 8.1C Reset 8.8C  Rain 16.0 mm
MARINE LIFE:The Bald Eagles started to arrive early in groups of 2 and 3 and by 8:30 there were 8 ( 1 mature ) sitting shoulder to shoulder along the ridge by the chopper pad.They were holding their wings at about a 45 degree angle as if to dry off.By 9am there were 17 eagles -4 mature- mostly on the southeast Rks. At 11:30 I noticed quite a number of birds flying around the Rosedale buoy,with the telescope we could see thousands of birds feeding in the tide line.There must be a lot of fish as the birds were active all afternoon.
