Torbay Boat Trip

Good morning out on the boat with Nigel, while we only saw 1 Red Throated  and 1 Great Northern Diver there was plenty of other birds to see. Between the Guillemots at the Ore stone , Berry Head and the rafts of birds in the bay there must have been 1000+ birds. Other birds on show were Gannets, Fulmars, Kittiwakes, 3 Common Scoters, Great Crested Grebes, Oystercatchers, Purple Sandpipers, Little Egret, Grey Heron, Cormorant, Shag and Raven.

A trawler was bringing in its catch and there was plenty of gulls but only Herring and Great Black-backed Gulls.

At Berry Head we was lucky enough to see 2 Porpoise.
