Splash Point  8/6/17

With plenty of Storm Petrels in Kent (unusual to be so many) in the past few days, this morning I was very confident in finding one off Splash Point despite only having seen two off here before (one in spring and one in the autumn). So I was pleased to spot one relatively close inshore only half hour from starting moving quickly east. Despite finding one quickly, this was sadly the only one in the three hours I (and soon to join me Bob Self) endured.

Totals between 07.40 - 11.10

Storm Petrel - 1 at 08.12 (less than a mile out at a guess)
Manx Shearwater - 10 (incl a flock of 8)
Sandwich Tern - 13
Gannet - 20
Common Scoter - 6
