Splash Point 27/4/18

What set to look like a promising day for seawatching turned out to be disappointing for birds, although eventually the species tally was respectable and it was great to get two Poms with cracking tails. On and off rain meant the umbrella was yet again much appreciated. Other then that a good number of Manx Shearwaters were passing each way. Yet again good company!
