Lyme bay boat trip. Friday evening

Highlight of trip a pale phase adult Arctic Skua (thanks Mike for confirmation) that appeared out of nowhere to harass the gulls feeding on the chum. A number of Manx shearwaters and 1 poss balearic. Guillemots, gannets, a couple of terns and a lot more kittiwakes than last trip. At least 3 dolphins off dartmouth and porpoise off Berry Head.
