Right Whale Mother #3157 and Calf A Second Day

Sector 3’s Thursday survey team takes the honors for the first Project sighting of the 2010 season. They spotted mother #3157 and calf from Beverly Beach at 9:45 am. The two whales stayed close to shore, ambling steadily south and providing good viewing to all who were able to come out for a look. The AirCam flew down for aerial photos as the whales swam through north Flagler Beach.

Mother and calf drifted past Flagler Pier just after 2:30 pm, creating an excellent opportunity for this photo. We left them just after 3:00 pm, still swimming south at a leisurely pace.
