Splash Point 26/8/15

A very productive two hour seawatch this afternoon, after finishing work and realising just how many Balearics must be up this end of the Channel. Also nice to see a couple of Tern flocks, a feature that was somewhat missing from this spring. 

Totals between 15.25-17.25 (Wind S veering SW 5)

Balearic Shearwater - 6 (4W & 2E) 
Arctic Skua - 3E (2DP & 1LP)
Black Tern - 9E
Common Tern - 90E
Gannet - small numbers lingering

Times for Balearics below:

1 West at 15.31
2 East at 16.58
3 West at 17.06

The latter two sightings were just after a long period of heavy rain and a clear spell before the next deluge. The two birds heading east plonked themselves on the sea, and were watched up to the three birds moved west.
