Berry Head seawatch

09:40-13:30, SSW4 clear gradually becoming more murky. At first large but distant feeding frenzy out in Lyme Bay, with many skua sp. attending, it gradually got closer to BHd and skuas started drifting off heading south, some coming closer 11:00 onwards. Those identified: 23 Poms, 18 Arctic and 4 Bonxie. Also Balearic Shearwater, 4  Mediterranean Gulls (2 ad, 2w, 1w) and Great Northern Diver.

While walking out, checked the bottom of the quarry and glimpsed what I thought was a Yellow-browed Warbler in with tit flock, on the way back it was calling strongly.
