Seawatching

I watched from Teignmouth from 13:45-16:45 this afternoon with Laurie and we logged 13 Balearic Shearwaters (all south), 150+ Manx Shearwaters (some north, some south, some circling which made counting difficult), three Mediterranean Gulls (ad & 2 juvs), three Common Terns, four commic terns and a female Common Scoter plus a steady trickle of Gannets, Kittiwakes, Fulmars and Sandwich Terns. Yesterday Laurie put in couple of hours early morning and had an Arctic Skua, a distant Arctic/Pom Skua and small numbers of Manx Shearwaters and commic terns passing.
