Lyme Bay boat trip

This mornings boat trip out into Lyme Bay from Brixham started well with 2 Grey Seals by Brixham Marina, 1 Purple Sandpiper by the Breakwater old jetty, 3 Rock Pipits, all this before we had left the harbour. Before Berry Head a group of 4/5 Common Dolphin. Traveling out into Lyme Bay 3 more groups of Common Dolphin seen, the last group was very large. Once we reached our chumming area the following birds sighted 10+ Manx Shearwater, 2 Balearic Shearwater, 3 Storm Petrel, 2 Artic Skua and 1 Pomarine Skua, 20+ Kittiwake, 12+ Guillemot, 2 Razorbill, 10 Common Tern, 8 Fulmar, Gannets and the usual assortment of Gulls. Sea was not as rough as thought so an enjoyable trip.
