The Sea Off Rossall Point As It Came Light
I stuck it out for an hour and a quarter and returned home having seen very little at all. In fact I didn't see any sea birds, let alone a Stormie! As the tide dropped a few waders appeared on the beach including 15 Oystercatchers, Turnstone, 4 Ringed Plovers, 2 Whimbrel, 26 Sanderlings and 10 Dunlin. Some of the Sanderling were in summer plumage and looked absolutely stunning. No chance of a photograph I'm afraid in these weather conditions.
It looks like more of the same for the weekend so I doubt I will get out ringing, but I haven't given up on that Storm Petrel!
