Shearwaters are building

Monday 23rd July 2012

A wet misty day with prolonged wet conditions all day at The Loop. A short clearance in the evening allowed one hours seawatching off the Bridges where there was one Balearic Shearwater, seven Sooty Shearwaters, 500 Manx Shearwaters per hour, one Puffin and smaller movements of auks, Fulmamrs, Kittiwakes and some gulls. On the headland there were two Wheatears, four Raven and mixed flocks of large gulls in freshly cut fields.
