More Berry Head

Seawatching from 2.15pm to 4.00pm.

Hectic first hour as the rain cleared and birds moved on mass out of the bay, counted over 140 'Commic' Terns, mostly Common with at least 3 Arctic Tern & 3 Sandwich Tern. Also 4 Balearic Shearwater, 41 Manx Shearwater, 3 Arctic Skua, 2 Bonxie, a Puffin, flock of 20+ Dunlin and lots of Kittiwake (100+ birds sat on the sea off the headland). Didn't pick up Dave's large Shearwater but I was probably distracted grilling the terns.
