Sightings from Prawle

4.5 seawatch in 4-5 wind just north of west produced my first 2 Storm Petrels this spring. Also singles of Bonxie, Pom and Arctic Skuas east. 6 summer-plumaged Great Northern Divers close west , 1 Diver sp east (presumably heading in the correct direction) and 2 Sandwich Terns. On the grassy slope east of the point 22 Whimbrel and 1 Bar-Tailed Godwit. At c 12.30 from the car park a small pod of 6 plus Bottle-Nosed Dolphins swam east close.
