Berry Head

This Pallas's Warbler (found by Peter Garvey) in the bottom of the quarry was rather a nice surprise while we were walking back from seawatching.

Rather dull light, but..... for the photograghers, all these 'poor' record shots are cropped tight and taken at ISO2000 (Nikon D7000 is pretty amazing for a DX camera in low light)!

Seawatching 07:10-13:00: Little Auk, Sooty Shearwater, 8 Balearic Shearwaters, 3 Manx Shearwaters, 8 Pomarine Skuas (all juvs), 2 Arctic Skuas, 2 Bonxies, 3 Common Terns, 2 Little Gulls ( ad &1w), Med Gull (1w), 3 Common Gulls, 756 Kittiwakes (incl. 113 juvs), c220 Gannets, c200 Auks, 3 Swallows and 2 Harbour Porpoise.
