Spent an hour and a half at Berry Head this morning from 05.50. Sea was pretty much calm - no white horses at all! A few Gannets diving close in and a Dolphin was all of interest early, but things livened up with a small passage of Common (Commic) Terns. In a 20 minute period 7 Arctic Skuas went past, the penultimate one accompanied by a Pomarine Skua. At one point the Arctic took exception to it's slightly larger cousin and made a brief pass at it from below. There was also a smattering of Manx Shearwaters with one Balearic Shearwater trailing the last group. A good sized group of Dolphins kept me amused for a while, but with nothing further going past I headed off.
