Thursday 30th September

Seawatching for two hours from 7.30am saw disappointing numbers compared to those further south at Berry Hd but far better than Seaton to the east. Birds were clearly passing further out in Lyme Bay and this is reflected by the number of birds too distant to identify. 

Totals included 15 Balearic Shearwater, with similar numbers of shearwater sp, an Arctic Skua and four skua sp, with hardly any Gannet or Kittiwake passage. A large flock of gulls were feeding off the seawall, mostly Black-headed and Herring Gull, but also four Mediterranean Gull and a Sandwich Tern. Other records included six Common Scoter on the sea, and 12 Swallow and a tight flock of 50 hirundine sp south.
