Lyme Bay Boat Trip

Boat trip out of Brixham into Lyme Bay started slow with a lumpy sea. 2 Common Dolphin about 4 miles out. Then went 8 miles out and chummed, only a few gulls but then we had 5 Storm Petrel, Bonxie, Kittiwake, Fulmar, 20 Manx Shearwater, Gannet and then a bird flew towards us, great discussion what is it, many pictures taken as it flew over the top of the boat!! The ID is possible Long-tailed Skua, pictures will  follow. A good trip.
