Current Sightings

This page will be updated Monthly. I am generally making the crossing to one of the Channel Islands about 2-3 days a week and most of the time I will base these sightings off of my own personal observations. If I am not frequenting the offshore waters for some reason or there is ample evidence a species I keep missing is still around I may include it here. Resident birds are not included.
