Going Down the Road

For the next couple of weeks the birds here are brought to you by the astounding province of Newfoundland & Labrador. (but no Labrador this time around) First stop – Brigus South. And in the distance we could see hundreds and hundreds of birds moving across the waters and perching on the islands but were unable to identify many. Next stop – Witless Bay to see the nesting colonies and get to know some of these characters a little more closely!

There was also a large colony of Common Murre and Razorbacks could be seen too if you look closely.

And along the lower ledges of the rock you can see the Kittiwakes sheltering their young.
