Ilfracombe Pier

Today and yesterday there's been some very good seabird activity in fairly close all heading down channel. Along with lots of Gannets and Kittiwakes I've never seen so many Arctic Skuas together, c12, I had four groups of 3 in view with more passing further out. About a third of them dark phase the rest light. Not a single Bonxie to be seen thou. 40+ Common Scoters in 3 flocks of about 15 passed west all at the same time as well.
