Current Sightings

This page will be updated as new sightings occur and every so often to update the last date seen. I am generally making the crossing to one of the Channel Islands about 3-5 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. Birds that are on the sightings board but have not been seen in over a month or two will be highlighted Red until they are seen again. Resident birds are not included.
