English Channel 30nm SSE of Start Point

Yesterday foraging around the fishing boat: Sooty Shearwater (getting quite late now for these), 27 Little Gulls (down channel passage of small groups of adults not stopping), 3 Mediterranean Gulls (all adults), 12 Bonxies, 150+ Kittiwakes, 300+ large gulls (mixture of LBBs, GBBs and Herring) and only one Fulmar (where have they gone? There are usually lots!). Also 30+ Common Dolphins while heading out.
