Prawle today


A short seawatch this morning from 8 to 9.30am produced a large feeding wraft of Manx Shearwaters with passage east and west. I estimated at least 750 -probably more, plus at least 11 Balearic Shearwaters amonst them. Otherwise a few Gannets, Kittiwakes, and a couple of Fulmars.
 
Lots of butterlies up to 11.30 am including 2 faded and 1 bright Dark Green Fritillary.
