Berry Head seawatch 06.00 - 15.50

As disappointing as most of the south coast today, despite the strong winds, presumably due to too clear conditions: 31 Balearic, 163 Manx & 3 (probably more in distance) large Shearwater sp; Bonxie, 7 Arctic & 3 Skua sp; 13 Common, 4 Arctic, 4 Sandwich & 11 Commic Terns; 3 Storm Petrels; ad Mediterranean Gull; 4 Whimbrels; 8 Common Dolphins & 3 Harbour Porpoises.

Tawny Owl calling as I arrived.
