English Channel 20nm SSE of Start Point
From an angling boat, I also witnessed a strong passage of Meadow Pipits heading north, also a few alba Wagtails (looked like Pied) and a couple of Chiffchaffs. Seabird wise, Lesser black-backs (migrants) were the most numerous gull, followed by Kittiwakes and Great Black-backs, also a few Black-headed Gulls heading north. Two dark phase Fulmars in with the light phase birds and up-to three Bonxies around the boat. Also two pods of Common Dolphins seen.
