Another successful trip with more cetacean sightings, including our first minke whale of the year! And somehow we managed to avoid all the weather that came through during the day. Several harbour porpoises were also recorded around the Manacles and a lot of birds were seen around the coast and offshore, including a peregrine with its kill and a high number of kittiwakes.

1 Minke Whale, fast traveler, first for 2020, 5 Harbour Porpoises, feeding, 1 Atlantic Grey Seal, Peregrine Falcons, with kill, 3 Great Northern Divers, +-25 Common Scoters, 3 ‘Bonxies’ Great Skuas, lots of Kittiwakes, feeding, Fulmars, at nesting cliffs, 2 Ravens, Guillemots, showing both summer and winter plumage, Razorbills, Gannets
