RBA: RED-LEGGED KITTIWAKE in Deep Bay - Sept 27th

At 12:15pm on Sept 27-2020, Mark Wynja found an adult Red-legged Kittiwake sitting on the shore at Deep Bay.  The bird was viewed for 45 mins by a few observers. At 1 pm the bird flew west and high over the mountains and they watched it fly for ten mins out of sight.

The bird was not relocated despite multiple observers looking.
