Despite the high winds and whitecaps, a spectacular day with 15-20 whales sighted and lots of action with mothers and calves and escorts and challengers.

Detailed notes of times, locations, ids, behaviour and sound recordings are made separately and catalogued with the fluke ids for future reference.

And we even got back in time to celebrate Earth Day with Somers, Elsa and Annabel.
