**Louise Nichols got another video of a Bobcat last week on their property in Aulac. As in Brian Coyle's Bobcat videos, this cat appears to be scenting, but in a different manner to the ones Brian sent in. Louise was wondering if this behaviour was scenting and if this would appear to be a female Bobcat as opposed to a male.

**Brian Stone went for a late afternoon drive on Tuesday to the coast and managed to get a couple photos through the snow and high winds there.

 At the Petit-Cap wharf he saw a SEAL swimming close into shore but was unable to get a photo or a proper ID.

 At the Rue Niles wharf in Cap Pele, he photographed some BONAPARTE'S GULLS flying low at the edge of the water and sometimes skimming it with their feet. Also, there were 3 LONG-TAILED DUCKS diving near the shore, 2 males and 1 female. The waves were high, and the wind was intense, but the birds seemed well able to handle the conditions.
