Start Point

Start Point Seawatch 10:30-16:00. Heading SW were: 3 Balearic Shearwaters, 2135 Manx Shearwaters, 86 European Storm-petrels, 15 Puffins, 23 Razorbills, 191 Guillemots, 150 Gannets, 37 Fulmars, Wimbrel and a Bonxie (this one went over the lighthouse! see photo). Why do I never see any spring Cory's!

Also Swifts still coming in off the sea, while there was a couple of hundred over Slapton Ley when heading home.
