Lyme Bay Boat Trip.

Today's trip out into Lyme Bay from Brixham was a good one. We had good numbers of Skua and Gannet and I think all enjoyed, so some numbers of sightings for you.

3 Arctic Skua (dark phase), 2 Arctic Skua (pale phase), 5 Great Skua, Sandwich Tern, Arctic Tern, Common Tern, Arctic Skua mostly chasing the Terns. Big Numbers of Gannets diving on fish and sitting on the water, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Great Black-backed Gull, Herring Gull, Med Gull, Kittiwake, Fulmar, rafts of Guillemots and some Razorbill but only 1 Manx Shearwater. 8+ Porpoise, 2 Common Dolphin, 4 Grey Seals in Brixham Harbour but most unusual was a large Grey Seal 12 Kilometres out into Lyme Bay, probably enjoying big shoals of fish out in Lyme Bay.  Hope some pictures put up on the Blog soon as this is the second to last trip I will be doing. Last trip 22nd and fully booked!!
