Jan 29_2018 Monday-A Brown Booby found in some distress at Ogden Point Breakwater readily accepted Victoria hospitality from a local employee, Central Vet Hospital (they look after all things wild) and SPCA's Wild ARC Metchosin where she is currently recovering. It is a rare sighting this far north. The west coast weather has been pretty wild lately. Read her story with comments by Ann Nightingale:

It's nice to know there is a place for them to recover and be cared for, even if they do eventually succumb.
