Topic: Gannet Migration off Cape May

There was a nice gannet migration at the Cape May beach front this morning.  Hundreds of gannets moving down the coast, not far offshore.  It was a "run and gun" migration for them with individual or sometimes two birds stopping briefly to dive at fish before quickly moving on.  They may have  been on herring, judging from the speed they were moving.  There were also quite a few first year birds mixed in, suggesting that there are plenty more birds to come.  So, migration continues and may never end this year if temperatures stay the way they are.
