Berry Head

Seawatch 13:15-17:45 (wish I had arrived earlier!): 77 Pomarine Skuas (nearly all juvs), 38 Arctic Skuas, 55 Bonxies, 2 Balearic Shearwaters, Manx Shearwater, Arctic Tern and a Long-tail / Arctic. At least another 9 Poms , 17 Arctics and 40+Bonxies seen before I arrived. So perhaps a record Pom count for Devon - will post some Pom pics tomorrow as many came past close. Also lots of Auks, Gannets and Kittiwakes including one 1w killed by two Bonxies infront of us .
