Eddystone

Kayak trip from Plymouth Sound out around Eddystone lighthouse. 0600-1500.

13 Storm Petrel

8 Balearic Shearwaters

3 Sooty Shearwaters (4, 8 and 9 miles offshore)

1 probable arctic skua

1 possible Great Shearwater- I heard it 'flick' as it passed a few feet behind my kayak but couldn't be bothered to turn round because I had just cricked my neck a few minutes before looking at a Manx. When I saw it it was too far off to be sure.

Plus 8 Common Dolphin

2+1 Harbour Porpoise

a few photos to follow

regards Rupert
