Berry Head

Seawatch 10:00-14:00. Quite an impressive seabird passage, the best birds being 2 Pomarine Skuas south, at 10:35 and 11:12. Both these birds still had their spoons despite being in adult winter plumage! Massive movement of auks (80-90% Razorbills) with c12,800 south (best hour 11:00-12:00 with 5,600) - biggest count I've had here! Otherwise 1 Great Skua, 7 Red-throated Divers, 320 Gannets, 550 Kittiwakes. Off the headland 3 Eider and 4+ Harbour Porpoise.
