Cool, breezy, cloudy, choppy water. Saw 3 PGs with fish, only 1 delivered.
Prior to survey start, saw a deer (buck) half way up steep bluff. We believe it had been spooked by a runner with 2 dogs. After sliding several times, it made it safely back down to the beach.

Cool, cloudy, slight breeze. 2 PGs with fish (1 sculpin, 1 gunnel). Observed a juvenile PG swim towards the PG with a gunnel and get chased off. The juvenile dove shortly thereafter and surfaced with prey of its own.
8/24/18 - Week 11 - A sculpin was delivered at 8:40 to a new burrow in Section E, but this "E3" burrow is unofficial, as only Section D was being officially surveyed today, since there had been no activity in Sections A-C & E in Weeks 9 & 10.
