Torbay boat trip 8.30-11 am

Very dull weather with a bit of drizzle, but good nonetheless. 1 great northern diver, 6 great crested grebes, 1 red necked grebe, 22 common scoter, 1 flyover shelduck, 8 purple sandpiper, 6 turnstone, hundreds of guillemots, 20+ razorbill, gannets and fulmars common. We picked up a bottle nosed dolphin which followed us all the way out to Berry Head and back to Brixham, occasionally splashing us as it played by the boat.
