The day of the Phalaropes

Off Grand Manan in Canada we once again made our way out to the fall off; a renowned area for whales known as the sugar bowl. I was behind our skipper looking over his shoulder at the view ahead. I noticed a grey slick on the sea. I strained my eyes. It varied, from a quarter to a half mile wide, but stretched from one horizon to the other. It wasn’t until we got closer I could see it was a gathering of Red necked Phalaropes. Just amazing.
