On August 19, we came across our fourth right whale, Dropcloth (#1271). He was to the northeast of where we had whales on the 17th, and seemed to be travelling in an easterly direction.
Our lack of right whales offshore was a very interesting observation, and has raised even more questions, which Philip will discuss in a future post. And while we didn't see many whales, we did see some other cool species which we'll be sharing with you in a follow-up blog!
