Sea Ice Around Newfoundland

Some of us monitor the to and fro of sea ice around Labrador & Newfoundland throughout the winter months in an effort to predict when and where seabirds (mostly eiders, but also certain gulls and falcons) may be found. 

This is a series of 8 images showing the extent of sea ice on this date (Jan 30 +/- 2 days) across the years 2014 to 2021.

Just one of those things I follow and another way to say this winter has been remarkably mild.

Second shot shows a small fraction of a flock of 20000+ eiders escaping the encroaching ice during the winter of 2017.
