We had a lovely encounter with a small pod of common dolphins yesterday feeding on a bait ball just below the surface below some gulls and a juvenile gannet. A huge flock of Manx shearwaters was seen offshore as well as multiple Mediterranean gulls feeding around a current line. Several peregrine falcons including a couple of recent fledglings were sighted around the coast at three different locations and a couple of seals popped up to watch us travel past. The auk colony is still busy with birds and a couple of chicks could just be seen tucked behind their mothers on the ledges.

6 Common Dolphins, 2 Atlantic Grey Seals, hundreds of Manx Shearwaters, +-20 Mediterranean Gulls, Fulmars, at nest site and offshore, Guillemots and Razorbills, offshore and at breeding site, 2 Bridled Guillemots, at breeding site, 7 Peregrine Falcons, from 3 different nest sites, including 2 fledglings, 2 Curlews, in tree, Barrel Jellyfish, 3 tiny Flatfish, in the marina
