yippee! seawatching!

1st of July - time to go seawatching! The wind swung round to the south-west this evening so I headed up to Galley for a scoveen at the sea. There were huge numbers of manx shearwaters scooting past close in - too close for the scope, meaning I had to keep switching from scanning further out and scanning the manxies for rarer fare! Three pomarine skuas were my first of the year, followed by 4 common terns.

Next up was a cracking cory's shearwater, hardly flapping as it headed west. Great to see one again! Two bonxies loomed up out of the mist, and then as it cleared and the sun came out, it was back to scanning the manxies which were still hooring past! With time running out a distant arctic skua made it 5 year ticks in 1 hour 15 mins - happy with that! (124). A good start to the season!
