Lyme Bay boat trip from Brixham.

This morning trip started well with a Grey Seal fast asleep on Brixham Marina wave pontoon. Just outside Berry Head sightings of 3 Harbour Porpoise but the best was to come when we reached about 5 miles out with 150+ Common Dolphin around the boat. Adults, young and some very young Dolphins, a fantastic experience. Chummed  at about the 7 miles mark. Birds seen 2 Great Skua, 1 Artic Skua, 1Skua sp, 20 Manx Shearwater, 1 Sooty Shearwater, 1 Yellow-legged Gull, 1 Storm Petrel, Fulmar, Kittiwake, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Great Black-backed Gull and in the Harbour area of Brixham White, Pied and Grey Wagtail. We had no Balearic Shearwater. A good trip and I hope some good pictures follow.
