Torbay Boat trip

Spent yesterday looking at weather maps watching fronts and decided to run today and had a good trip with a Red-necked Grebe out from the Broadsands/Saltern Cove area. 12 Great Crested Grebe, 6 Great Northern Diver, 17+ Fulmar, 20+ Cormorants in the 7 Quarries area, Brixham, 4 Purple Sandpiper at Brixham Breakwater, Gannets and 30+ Guillemots on the water off Berry Head. 1 Harbour Porpoise and 5 Grey Seals in the Brixham area. Glad we went, finding a window in the weather. Wind increased as we returned to Paignton Harbour.
