Hurricane Arthur brought rain in the night, and a lot of wind and choppy seas today. The students spent most of the day in lecture, and we were interrupted by these two great black-backed gulls, who were pecking at the classroom window. They hang out on the roof almost every day, but today they seemed very eager to learn about whale and seal bioacoustics. The students spend most of the evening studying for their first exam, while i wrote their first exam! Another beautiful sunset and some more fireworks displays up and down the coast rounded out a busy day.
