Berry Head seawatch

Seawatching 16:00-18:00, to catch arrival of weak frontal system light SSW wind occasional drizzle. Mostly distant were: 9 Arctic Skuas, Pom/Arctic Skua, Long-tailed/Arctic Skua (more likely Lt on jizz and behaviour, much stalling & bouncy flight), Bonxie, 5 Arctic Terns (3 ads, 2 juvs), 4 Sandwich Terns, Balearic Shearwater, 35 Manx Shearwaters and c20 Common Dolphins. Some feeding birds out in Lyme Bay produced a constant trickle of Gannets and Kittiwakes (no count).
