Cornwall + Somerset 23-24/7/12

Day 1
I left home at midnight on Sunday night and arrrived at Porthgwarra around 5am. I seawatched on Gwennap Head for 9 hours. There was always a steady stream of Manx Shearwaters passing by. Other totals included:

Balearic Shearwater - 3
Strom-Petrel - 24
Pomarine Skua - 2
Arctic Skua - 1
Great Skua - 1
Puffin - 1

Common Dolphin - 15

I then visited Cape Cornwall and walked round the area. I managed to see 7 Chough all in one flock.

Later on I went to Land's End for the sunset and an Oceon Sunfish was offshore.

Day 2
Up early again but the wind was non-existent, however I still went to Gwennap Head and apart from hundreds of Manx Shearwaters, there wasn't much else so I left for Somerset.
