A great day for a wildlife boat trip in Torbay, Thick mist and only 5 people but the started to see groups of 30 to 40 Guillemots flying through the mist into the Bay, this carried on for much of the day. On last trip, out of the mist a large bird on the water , it was a Great Northern Diver and we passed close to it, sorry no pictures, soon after this, still very misty, a Gannet on a dive missed calculated and hit the hand rail of the vessel and  fell into the sea, unfortunately died. Returning back to Paignton we again saw the GND. Not bad for a very misty day!!!!
