St. Mary's

After getting soaked to the skin yesterday and not feeling all that good for it afterwards, none of us could bring ourselves to go straight out into the wind and rain again this morning. Heading out to Peninnis for a few hours of seawatching in the afternoon paid off with five Balearic Shearwaters, two Sooty Shearwaters, four Puffins, a Manx Shearwater, three Bonxies, five Guillemots and eight Razorbills. The only other sightings worth mentioning from very limited birding were two Mediterranean Gulls, a Greenshank and a Sparrowhawk.
