North Coast – Widmouth Head, Sun 18 Sep

Two Leach's Petrels well offshore struggling to fly into the teeth of the NW gale... A few very tired looking Manx Shearwaters also trying hard to get out of the Bristol Channel. Yesterday (19th) an exhausted Guillemot was being hunted by a Great Black-back, which jumped on the auk each time it surfaced from a gull-avoidance dive...
