8 Hour trip out on Sunday with Dave Saunders on Kelly Heros into Lyme Bay gave an impressive number of seabirds. Lots of bird movement made it difficult to accurately state the exact numbers but these are the minimum: 2 Arctic Skuas harassing the Kittiwakes, 2 Pomarine Skuas harassing the gulls, Great Skua, Storm Petrel, 500+ Guillemot in several rafts, 200 Manx Shearwaters, 15 Great Shearwaters, 10 Sooty Shearwaters, 30 Balearic Shearwaters, Cory Shearwater, 2 Razorbills, 4 Yellow-legged Gulls mostly 2nd cy with the occasional juvenile. 30 Gannets with all ages demonstrated. 2 Common Terns. Usual gulls. Common Dolphin and Harbour porpoise.
