High tide, calm seas, smoky from fires; the most activity I've seen in one day at this colony in the 4 years I've been monitoring. Three burrows are still active with deliveries, but there were 18 visits to 6 burrows w/o deliveries. The adults were gathering at the rocks onshore and vocalizing. Amazing day!
