7th June 2017

Following the strong WSW winds and rain of yesterday, the wind was still strong, the waves were quite high and it was no surprise that in a quick visit to St. Margaret's Bay 10.30 - 11.00 there were 2 European Storm Petrels, including one lingering quite close and seven Manx Shearwaters down channel. A Common Scoter was in The Bay also. These were our first 'stormies' since similar conditions in 2006.

Brendan and Julian continued to watch in The Bay until 13.30 and added two more European Storm Petrels, 24 Manx Shearwaters and a Black Tern.

Nigel looked from the beach in Kingsdown in the afternoon and had another European Storm Petrel.
