Gannet Spectacle Day 2; First Barn Swallow

100 Northern Gannets per minute were flying south through the fog off Norbury's Landing this morning. Others sat on the water, how many who knows since visibility was so limited. Clay Sutton described a similar phenomenon all the way up the bay at Fortescue, and Michael O'Brien described similar numbers, even better than yesterday's, down at the Concrete Ship this morning.

While checking the bay a FOS Barn Swallow was a delight, flying up the bay beach. As I came home to a fog-free afternoon, the familiar piping of an Osprey over my house was one more signal of the changing season.
