Berry Head

Seawatch 0620-0820: 1 Pomarine Skua ad pale > N, 2 Mediterranean Gulls (inc 1 juv my first of the summer), 303 Manx Shearwaters, 2 Balearic Shearwaters also 6+ Harbour Porpoise and 20+ Common Dolphin. An ad Peregrine brought in  in an ad tern (I picked up the falcon a long way out but came straight over my head), the close scope views led me to believe it was a Roseate Tern - full black cap, all black bill and pale grey drooping wing with grey wedge, I didn't see any other terns during the mornings watch! A juvenile Tawny Owl was roosting in the quarry again.
