Berry Head

Seawatch 07:00-14:00 E-ENE 4-5  (with ML until 09:15). Balearic Shearwaters 66 S (8 N), Manx Shearwater S, Arctic Skua 16  S (3 N), Great Skua S, Mediterranean Gull 5 S (all 1cy), Common Gull 7 S, Little Gull 1cy S, Common Tern 2 S, Kittiwake 837 S, Common Scoter 2 S (8 N), Fulmar 7 S, Auks 28 S (mostly Razorbill), Brent Goose heading N and c30 Swallows heading S.

With now c420 Balearics past Berry Head since 10th, I made some enquiries with our French colleauges about the situation on their side of the channel. Sure enough c4000 were recorded in Douarnenez Bay (Brittany) on 9th September - makes our counts look fairly meagre!
