Hallo… Georgia here. I had my last trip as crew with AK Wildlife Cruises today for a while and it was a perfect day to end on. With strong easterly winds still but gorgeous weather, we headed east along the coast before running back along with the sea, covering over 40 miles in total. There is sadly still not a lot of Seabird or Cetacean activity offshore, however, we are getting huge amounts of bait fish recorded through our radar which is promising for the weeks ahead, and we did have some very close-up encounters with Grey Seals and with some of our nesting seabirds today. I am heading to Cardigan Bay in Wales in a couple of weeks to help monitor the marine mammals there with The Wildlife Trust of South & West Wales but am hoping to come back to Falmouth not too long after! Thank you, Captain Keith for helping me get there.

7 Atlantic Grey Seals, 3 hauled out, 3 separate sightings, 1 Whimbrel, Guillemots, offshore and with chicks at nest site, Bridled Guillemot, at nest site, Razorbills, offshore at nest site, 3 Ravens, family group, Fulmar, Gannets, Manx Shearwaters, passing through offshore, Carrion Crows, Rock Pipits, Blue Jellyfish
