Berry Head

Seawatch 10:30-13:00, a bit too sunny but at least a brisk S/SW wind: huge number of gulls feeding out in Lyme Bay with the odd Bonxie and Arctic Skua harassing them, otherwise a few Manx a distant Sooty, a closer Black Tern and several distant 'commic' terns. Strange to get no Balearic shearwaters on this ideal wind in what is proving to be a very poor summer for them so far.
