Start Point

Seawatch 07:00-11:00: 266 Manx Shearwaters (count abandoned due to birds circulatiing from 09:00ish), 2 Puffins, 2 Arctic Skuas, 3 Sandwich Terns, 25 Guillemots and 8 Razorbills. However at 08:22 a summer plumage Black Guillemot flew past, not going SW with the normal passage, but bizarrely heading NE - making a four auk day in July! Hopefully it should turn up again further up the coast (may be off Berry Head etc).
