Porthgwarra sea watch Sunday 19th July

Sadly no photos today as Porthgwarra is simply too distant for photography. A WSW breeze was promising and we were not disappointed. From 7.30am to 11.30am we logged:

4 Cory's Shearwater
14 Balearic Shearwater
1 Yelkouan Shearwater showing the full suite of characteristics.
17 Sooty Shearwater
1 Storm Petrel
100's Manx Shearwater
6 Puffin
1 Whimbrel
8 Common Scoter

Perhaps the most surprising aspect of the weekend was no skua sightings and just one Storm Petrel.
