Wednesday 6th July saw the weather change rapidly with a series of lows approaching Ireland from the south west. So with predicted high winds from this direction it looked good for sewatching. Brian Finnegan and I decided to head to the Bridges to do a couple of hours seawatch. When we got to the Bridges the wind was from the east and not the south west as predicted. Nevertheless we did a two hour seawatch in which there were over 2,000 Manx Shearwaters, one Cory's Shearwater and a pod of 14 Bottle-nosed Dolphins. On the headland due to heavy rain and high winds small birds stayed under cover but we did see ten Ravens and two Chough.
