We have been receiving some great photos from readers who are using their cameras to document this year’s herring run. We offer our thanks to all who have sent us their images. The photo above is one of the better ones we have received. It’s of an eagle eating a herring in Parksville on Friday and was taken by Parksville resident Larry Trush.

Readers continue to send us great photos from the herring spawn

The latest of an eagle having a herring lunch was sent to us by Parksville resident Larry Trush

That fantastic photo of a sea lion having a herring snack on our front page Thursday was shot by Tony Markle of Parksville.

We were scrambling to confirm it was Markle just before deadline last week, but decided to publish the image without a photo credit.

Our thanks to Markle for sharing his great work with our readers. You can see more photos of the herring spawn today on page A1, A4 (another great shot from a reader) and a photo page, A12.
