Brixham pelagic, last night.

Lumpy conditions at sea off Berry Head brought 2 sooty shearwaters, 6+ balearic shearwaters at least 2 of which came to chum behind the boat, and around 100 manx shearwaters. Also 1 distant skua sp., the usual gannets, fulmars, kittiwakes and commoner gulls. 2 porpoises and a dolphin sp.? were off the end of Berry Head. A detour to Seven Quarries and Churston Cove on the way back in produced 3 grey herons at the roost, and a grey seal.
