Up coming pelagic birding trips. Oct. 1st. and 22nd.

David Povey

Hello Birders,
This Saturday, Oct. 1st. pelagic birding trip is booked full and has a waiting list. The weather and seas forecast look favorable.

The Saturday, Oct. 22nd. pelagic birding trip has a very light passenger load reserved at this point. This is a 6 hr. trip offshore, leaving at 7 a.m.and will likely explore the Nine Mile Bank, to the edge of the San Diego Through, and perhaps as time allows up towards La Jolla. The boat is the comfortable 80 ft. "Legacy". .Cost is $110
This date is still in the migration window and has a chance for such species as Flesh-footed, and Buller's  Shearwaters, South Polar Skua, and a chance of a mix of a few Storm-Petrels, such as Least, and Black.
If you'd like to book that trip, you can go to the www.sdwhale.com website.
Hit the red "Book Now" and scroll down to the date., or call Seaforth Sportfishing Landing at (619) 224 -3383 during regular business hours
I hope you will join us on the trip.

Those of you booked on this Saturday's trip (Oct. 1st.);
Please be at the Seaforth Landing in Mission Bay ready to check into the office between 6-6:20 a.m. ( Do not try to check in to the office earlier than 6 as several fishing boats go out ahead of us, and once they are gone, we have wide open access there).
Once checked in at the office, find us on the back patio area for manifest (show your receipt), shared eBird, and orientation. We will board at about 6:40-6:45. Don't be late. 
Parking is free in the Seaforth Sportfishing lot and on the street. Please be careful NOT to park in the lots to the east or west, as these are permit lots, and may tow your vehicle. A good idea is to carpool, or rideshare to the landing as parking can be tight, as fishing remains exceptionally good.
As I say the forecast is nice, but as always there will be motion, so come prepared. 
Remember sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, and a light jacket or windbreaker.
The boat sells drinks and snack items. I would suggest you bring a sandwich or other lunch items.
We plan to return no later than 5 p.m.
Those of you on the waiting list, if you wish to go. Show up and be ready to travel during the above times.  See me.
I have yet to have a trip this year that didn't go off without no-shows. If you go to the trouble, I'll get you on the boat.
This is only open to the current waiting list folks. Thank you

Good birding,
Dave Povey
