7th June

With the stormy weather continuing and news of Storm Petrels scattered around the south coast there were hopes of some good seawatching off Dungeness today but despite coverage for much of the day the only birds of note were 47 Manx Shearwaters and four Arctic Skuas up till 1600hrs. However, an evening seawatch from 1730hrs to 2100hrs saw things improve considerably with an outstanding total of 26 Storm Petrels along with a close Sooty Shearwater and a further 30 Manx Shearwaters moving west.

A Grey Seal was also seen.
