DB Plymouth Group, Lyme Bay Trip.

Plymouth group had a trip out this morning from Brixham  into Lyme Bay. 1 Grey Seal in harbour. Nice and sunny but very quiet some Guillemot on the water, 2 Razorbill, 8 Scoter flying in the distance, a small group of Kittiwake on the water until we reached the 8 mile mark. At last birds started to come to the chum. Birds seen 3 Storm Petrel, 1 Great Skua, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Great Black-backed Gull , usual support from the Herring Gull and Fulmar. Very few Manx Shearwater, approx10. Coming back in we saw 6+ Common Dolphin and 2+ further out. Today we reached the 9 mile mark.
