We were very excited to have naturalist and TV presenter Nick Baker on board yesterday for a 7 hour cruise with a group of enthusiastic school students who all helped us record a diversity of wildlife. We explored right down to Lizard Point and Kynance Cove before looping back offshore and covering a large area of sea. Conditions were a bit choppier today but we still spotted two large pods of common dolphins and a few harbour porpoises as well as a large gathering of stunning Med gulls in the Carrick Roads and several grey seals. No large workups were found but quite a few gannets were seen diving and feeding throughout the day!
+-85 Common Dolphins, one traveling pod spread out over a mile, 3 Harbour Porpoises, 5 Atlantic Grey Seals, 4 males, 1 female, lots of Manx Shearwaters, continually flying through, most heading west, possible Balearic Shearwater, lots of Gannets, adults and juveniles, +-14 Mediterranean Gulls, including few juveniles, few Guillemots, 1 Fulmar, 3 Peregrine Falcons, including 2 chicks, Shags and Cormorants, Barrel Jellyfish, Red Admiral Butterfly, migrating north
