September 22nd & 23rd

October 15th, 2020

Today we had our final MARINElife cruise for this year! There was a bit of a breeze and a chop in the sea but we still managed a full 7 hours at sea, to Gorran Haven and back, recording a wonderful diversity of wildlife including common dolphins, harbour porpoises and bluefin tuna.  Around 10 of the critically endangered Balearic shearwaters were also sighted as well as a new born seal pup, spotted in one of the most unlikely places!

90 Common Dolphins, two separate pods, +-110 Harbour Porpoises, 38 Atlantic Grey Seals, including very plump pup, 20 Balearic Shearwaters, small numbers of Manx Shearwaters, Gannets, 1 Arctic Skua, light phase, Guillemots, Razorbills, 3 Fulmars, 5 Sandwich Terns, Mediterranean Gulls, 3 Peregrine Falcons
