{Flight} 03 October 2010 Jeffrey's Ledge

It's been along time since we flew a right whale survey, and it was really nice to be back up in the air! Our airplane (a NOAA Twin Otter) has been assisting efforts in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill since the end of May, and just returned to Hyannis last week. We flew out to Jeffrey's Ledge where we spotted two right whales in a surface active group.

Hopefully we get some good weather so we can get out there again soon and see where the rest of the right whales are hiding!
