    A spectacular day for us on the Baie Sainte-Marguerite tower. The blue sky is dotted with a few scattered clouds. We observe a herd of about twenty adult and young belugas and even one to three calves. The exact number of newborns is difficult to confirm because the animals are moving about vigorously. One minute, all the animals are swimming practically on top of one another and the next, they are widely dispersed. Tails and pectoral fins break the surface and slap the water. The encounter with the herd allows us to recognize well known stars from the St. Lawrence beluga photo-ID catalogue: Athéna, Miss Frontenac, Céline, Pure Laine and Blanchon were together that day.
