SRKWs go up Island at peak flood

After transiting the west side of San Juan Island last night on the ebb tide, a group went back up the west side today around the peak flood. They were located early on by the Beam Reach boat off Hannah Heights and then were heard first on the Lime Kiln hydrophones, seen on the Center for Whale Research OrcaCam, and then heard on the Orcasound hydrophone. A few S17 calls were heard at 15:45 back down at Lime Kiln, after most animals had faded off to the north, and an S7 was just heard there.
