Stag Rocks 28.8.13

During a family trip to Stag Rocks me and my Dad took the oppurtunity to look at the sea, where hundreds of Shearwaters, Gannets and Terns were feeding offshore. In amongst these the highlights were:

2 Balearic Shearwaters
5+ Sooty Shearwaters
300+ Manx Shearwaters
7+ Arctic Skuas
1 Little Gull
2 Black Terns

15 Roseate Terns were also on the rocks and allowed a close approach if you were careful.

  1. That's quite a family trip Jonny! I only need another 297 Manx sightings this year to catch up your day total. :-) Brian.
