    In the Saguenay, visibility is not very good. A few rays of sun penetrate the fog, which creates reflections off the water surface. Nevertheless, we manage to spot a herd of twenty adult and young belugas. The animals are taking long dives, making approaches difficult. Two animals are spitting streams of water into the air; perhaps they are hunting.

    We easily spot Miss Frontenac in the herd thanks to the broad gash in her back. At her side is a young “bleuvet” (second- or third-year calf). This is an interesting observation, since last year Miss Frontenac was observed with a newborn. It is therefore likely that this calf is hers. In the herd, we also observe Artsea and Athéna. A new group arriving from Baie Sainte-Marguerite joins the herd. Just before leaving the herd, we notice a few newborns.
