Prawle seawatch

Frank was present from 6.30 am and had 200+ Manx, I was present from 8.00-14.00 and logged 700 further Manx, 6 Balearic, 1 Sooty Shearwater (11.20, so different bird from Start) also 1 Eider, 2 Sandwich Tern, 12 Ringed Plover, 2 Whimbrel. Strangely we did not get the heavy rain belt which happened at Start! which may be why the Great Shearwater was not seen .
