Boat Trip from Brixham

On a boat trip out from Brixham into Lyme Bay with skipper Dave Saunders of Kellys Hero Charters the following were seen:  10 Kittiwakes, LBB, GBB and Herring Gulls, 4 Fulmars, 12 Guillemots, Razorbill,  25+ Manx Shearwaters, Bonxie and best of all, 5 Balearic Shearwaters flying South, one of which was very confiding and came to within 6 foot of the boat. This allowed excellent views of the bird as it dived below the surface to feed on the chum.
