Below is the ebird report for the quarterly survey of Grandview Island.
Weather was clear and warm, climbing into the 70s. Tide was going out as
high tide was 8:05 and low tide was 2:29. The flock of Brants remained all
day on and close to shore. Gannets were moving from south to north as there
was a brisk southerly wind.
