29th May boat trip – Mackerel are starting to show in small shoals and we had a selection of fish caught and returned. Good views of a sleeping seal, bobbing about just off the shore gave an extra talking point for the two young boys who were experiencing their first fishing trip, they quickly took to the techniques and have a tale to tell when they are back at school. Gannets, Fulmar, Manx Shearwaters, Black Guillemots and a Great-crested Grebe were seen; Peregrines were heard calling on the cliffs in the bright sunlight, giving a wild atmosphere to the shoreline.
16th May. Whimbrels part of a group of 9, on the beach at high tide, they were very flighty and took to the wing at 100m plus. Long distance shots of then passing along the coast – reference/record quality photos only but these are Whimbrels
The weather for the week looks a bit windy with SW F6 – F7s forecast this so little chance of getting the boat out of the harbour.
