Start Point

Seawatch 09:15-14:30

Together with Dell and Mark Darlaston saw 10 Cory's Shearwaters, 5 Great Shearwaters, 11 Sooty Shearwaters, 1000+ Manx Shearwaters, 30 Balearic Shearwaters, Storm Petrel, Arctic Skua, 2 Great Skuas, 45 Mediterranean Gulls and 5 Yellow-legged Gulls. Dell and Mark still there when I left so totals may have increased. Lots probably missed as the conditions were atrocious at times and there is little shelter there meaning our optics were often unusable. Amazing how Med and Yellow-legged Gulls quite possibly outnumbered Black-headed Gulls and Kittiwakes.
