This morning the orcas were heading to the east inside the Robson Bight Ecological Reserve but as we travelled in their direction they turned back to the west. Our early sightings of them were from the Reserve Boundary but as they moved further to the west and were outside of the Reserve, we were able to view them more closely and identify them. They were travelling close along the Vancouver Island shoreline, the A23’s appeared in the lead close with the A25’s, the A24’s were behind them followed by the A30’s and back a distance behind them were the A8’s. Some foraging was observed when the pods slowed at Kaikash to feed, they had been travelling at a fast pace prior to this. Other species also seen today were: Dall’s Porpoises, Bald Eagles Rhinoceros Aucklets, Common Murres, Red-necked Phalaropes, Mew, Glaucous-winged, Herring and California Gulls.
