This is why I just love birding. This afternoon I went for some more seawatching and has cracking views of more Storm Petrels. Below are notable species as well as some totals for the seawatch:
42 Storm Petrels
2 Great Skua
EDIT: I forgot to add before a cracking full summer plumage Grey Plover flew North aswell. These are truly stunning birds.
Was hard to look for anything else as I was so fascinated in looking for the Storm Petrels. Tomorrows weather doesn't look so good and perhaps a few more will pass, what a truly memorable period of seawatching. The months of seawatching for me have not began, next northerly might have to drag myself out of bed for.
Whitburn basically slapped every other county seawatching site in the face with a mighty 358 Storm Petrels today in 14.5 hours seawatching.
Until next time, Foghorn out!
