Well I believe, by any recent indications, that this is going to be a very good year for viewing Icebergs in Newfoundland. Although these little chunks are just "bergy-bits" at Outer Cove on April 25th,2008, there are big bergs offshore and floating down the "IceBerg Alley". In particular there is one off Logy Bay probably about 15 km or so off. I could see it through binoculars and it looked massive. It is at 47.610792 Lat and -52.653694 Long it is identified by icebergfinder.com as #12361, Blocky and Larg.
There are three other smaller pieces identified,12364 is Pinnacle Shaped and small off Ferryland. There are two bergy-bits #'s 12363 and 12362 of Cape Broyle and are Tabular. You can actually track their progress at www.icebergfinder.com
