The was a Rhinocerous auklet (Cerorhinca monocerata) in the water off the north side of the island. Haven’t seen many of these this summer. There was also a small flock of Surfbirds (Aphriza virgata) on the SW end of the main island just after sunset.

Worked on the tank shed a bit today. Talked with Environment Canada and Coast Guard regarding maintenance issues. Everything is now in order.
