On Sunday evening a flock of around 20 pelicans landed on the West rock, joining the elephant seals that were there. The light was really poor so I couldn’t get a very good quality image. There has recently been a sighting of a similar size group close to Victoria, likely the same ones.
On Dec 3 there were 4 Pelicans sighted in the reserve as well as a Peregrine Falcon.
Misery has been on the main island up near the South side of the tower for several days. I have seen up to 8 other elephant seals on West Rock including a male that looks nearly as big as Misery.
On Tuesday morning and again in the evening the wind picked up to 40 knots from the West.
