Brief sea-watch - Westward Ho!

Spent about 20 minutes by the headland (S end of WH) at around high water.  Visibility was not good because of spray mist and severe windshake!  Spotted a Bonxie about 500 mtrs out from the shore, and a flight of seven probable Little Auks, about 300 mtrs offshore - but wouldn't claim them as a definite record because of above mentioned conditions and also the sighting consisted of a number of brief glimpses between rollers. Shame - would have been a Devon first for me!
