  5. Number observed: 80

    Details: **high count; first one, then two, then 9 jaegers seen flying in groups northwestward close to the beach. Scoped at great distant, but birds were sleek and narrow winged and never gave the impression of anything other than Parasitic, although the identification as such is admittedly based solely on "jizz". the bulk of the flight was between 18:20 and 18:40 and since we were not watching constantly, we surely missed a few.
