Lyme Bay boat trip from Brixham

Pics from today's trip. Additional to Nigel's list, 2 adult Mediterranean Gulls just off Berry Head, and a 1st summer Common Gull offshore at the chum. The small bill with only a trace groove (visible in other pics), dusky face and lack of coloured eye ring identify the Puffin as a 1st year bird: see Mike Harris's paper:

Additional to the birds, 2 Compass Jellyfish and several Blue Jellyfish.
