North Carolina pelagic

Today I went out on a special Brian Patteson pelagic trip out of Hatteras for attendees of the Carolina Bird Club meeting. It was a small group of birders who braved very cold weather, but at least no rain. The sea was pretty good too. Highlights were some 4000-plus Northern Gannets, Red Phalaropes, an Iceland Gull, many Razorbills, a Parasitic Jaeger (but no Great Skua), Great and Lesser Black-backed Gulls, and Brant back near shore.
