Saturday and Sunday Lyme bay boat trips

Saturday a group of Devon Birds members came out on a Boat trip from Brixham. Very poor sea state gave us rough seas. Birds seen 4 Mute swans flying over just before departing from Brixham, 1 Bonxie, Gannets, Manx Shearwater, 2 Shearwater sp, Fulmar, Kittiwake, GBbG and herring Gull. A frustrating trip.

Sundays trip totally different and a great trip. A big feeding frenzy with 35+ Common Dolphin, 200+ Gannets diving and was a Fantastic sight. 12 Harbour Porpoise, 12 common Scoter, 4 Bonxie, 1 Balearic Shearwater, Swallow, Kittiwake, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Great Black-backed Gull, Common Gull and Herring Gull. Hope some pictures will be posted by somebody on the trip.
