7-17-17 How Quickly Things Can Change

Monday, July 17
...over the last few days more bait fish (tiny silvering flashing herring, I'm told) and a bit larger fish maybe 3 or 4", have been appearing and bigger fish have been going after the larger of the small fish...
...more gulls have been showing up, but not a huge amount...
...a few harbor porpoise too...
...last evening a small group of Transients came down the west side of San Juan Island at just about dark-thirty...
...and today L Pod whales were seen coming in from the open ocean...

...they made it into Haro Strait at about 8:30pm and very faint L Pod up-tick calls could be heard over the Lime Kiln hydrophones...
..now that's a big change - first time of hearing SRKW calls over the hydrophones since July 1st!
...it was an evening of watching the boats as they slowly came across the strait...caught a couple blows and one splash but that's it...still too far out...
...lost sight of them not long after...

...will they be here tomorrow?  maybe, maybe not...can't wait to find out!
