Falmouth Patch (10th May)

Seawatching late morning with Dan. A strong SW-W wind with white horses throughout the bay. Glare was a bit of a problem too as the waters around St Anthony's Head were reflecting quite a lot of sunlight by the time we arrived, making it all the more tricky.

Pendennis Point

Counted 92 Manx Shearwaters between 9:40-10:14am (all moving westwards), that's 2.7 per minute.
Fulmars, Gannets and Kittiwakes also trickling through in smaller numbers and at least 4 Great Northern Divers on the sea (one in sum plum).  A Wall Brown was also flying around at Little Pendennis and a partially leucistic male Blackbird collecting worms.

1 Reed Warbler singing and a Great Crested Grebe with a couple Swallows also lingering about.
