Berry Head

A couple of visits to the head today started with a dawn chorus walk lots of song, best birds were a Sedge Warbler steady passage of Swifts again - 60 plus and a summer plumaged Great Northern Diver over the top of the headland.

this afternoon the wind dropped and the sun tried to break through at sea 23 Manx Shearwaters, 2 Common Scoter a small pod of about 10-12 Common Dolphin and 2 Harbour Porpoise.

In the quarry a Reed Warbler broke into song and a minimum of 9 Small Blue Butterflies and my first Common Blue Butterfly of the year.
