With fresher winds and drizzle today most of the interest was inevitably offshore. Almost seven hours of coverage eventually produced four Balearic and six Manx Shearwaters, ten Fulmars, singles of Arctic and Great Skua and a party of four Black Terns whilst three Mediterranean Gulls and two juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls were feeding at the fishing boats or the Patch.
Six Porpoises and a Grey Seal were also feeding offshore.
