No birds. Hardly a sign of life at all.(Cont.)"Macfadyen signed up to this scheme while he was in the US, responding to an approach by US academics who asked yachties to fill in daily survey forms and collect samples for radiation testing - a significant concern in the wake of the tsunami and consequent nuclear power station failure in Japan."(*Imagine his surprise when he finds out how radioactive that water is)As Feel free to mirror and share this video anytime.
