Off again and Humpbacks

Off south again on 21st March. Arguably a silly date to be flying to the southern hemisphere but never mind. Post-breeding dispersal of seabirds actually makes autumn an interesting time to down there. Route is Falklands, South Orkneys, NW Weddell Sea (just before the ice gets there, hopefully), South Georgia (with base calls), Falklands and then holiday time on Ascension Island on way back. Getting back early May.

Below is some video of Humpback Whales feeding off Cape Cod in the summer. We were out there to learn about some new kit we have but this was on a day off.
