Hope's Nose 0700-1100

A cracking light phase Pomarine Skua close inshore at 0835, complete with spoons, was bird of the day. Also 4 Arctic Skuas, a Bonxie, 2 Storm Petrels, a dozen Common Terns and about 600 Manx Shearwaters, nicely rounded off with 2 Puffins sitting on the sea. But a decided lack of Balearics here! Would have given it longer but rather wet...
