Berry Hd

Despite fantastic looking conditions misty/drizzle & mod/light E wind there was very little around the headland: 2 Reed Bunting, 2 Siskin, 5 Stonechat, 9 Goldcrest, 3 Blackcap. Also 1 Great Northern Diver looking back toward Brixham Breakwater.

As I walked into the quarry I could see groups of Gannets passing (>S) the headland an a couple of Bonxies so a 1/2 hr seawatch followed (including Nigel Butlers counts): 5 Bonxie, 2 Pomarine Skuas, 100+ Gannets, 50+ Kittiwakes, 1 Red-throated Diver and a Bottle-nosed Dolphin >S at 9am.
