Berry Head

Seawatch 13:00-17:30. A series of blustery heavy showers and a strenghtening southerly proved very rewarding.  Adult Long-tailed Skua (with almost complete tail, slowly S 15:50-16:01), 21 Balearic Shearwaters, 755 Manx Shearwaters, 3 Bonxies, 3 Arctic Skuas, 3 Sandwich Terns. Watched a Great Black-backed Gull dealing with a large Cuttlefish - which kept squirting it with ink, until the gull finally won! Also around 8 Harbour Porpoise and A Grey Seal off the head.
