Cetacean Free Zone

Sunday morning seawatching off the Obs wasn't as good as Saturday and there were less Atlantic Grey Seals and no Cetaceans, but as always it was pleasant to be out. Again I didn't get there until 7.00 a.m. because of a late night combined with real ale, but the warm sun under four oktas cloud and fairly light southeasterly winds helped to revive me!

Passage at sea included 13 Gannets, three Cormorants, three Sandwich Terns, four Manx Shearwaters, a Kittiwake, 33 Common Scoters, two Greylag Geese, three Auk sp. and a Common Tern. Just two Atlantic Grey Seals this morning and neither of them munching on a Thornback Ray!


I'm struggling to get out in the early part of this week due to work commitments, but should be okay for Thursday onwards. I'm actually hoping to get out ringing on Thursday!
