Well Choughed !

Me Jono and Bradders just arrive back from a superb weekend's Sea-watching from Porthgwarra, Cornwall.
With low pressure bruing inn from the Atlantic we timed it bang on for Friday where the following counts were made:

4 Great Shearwater, 11 Sooty Shearwater, 111 Balearic Shear, 108 Manx Shear, 15 Bonxie, 2 Arctic Skua, 153 Kittiwake, 12 Common Scoter, 5 Storm Petrel's, 3 Little Gull, Arctic Tern, 2 Common Tern, 2 Sandwich Tern, 100's Gannet's, 3 Whimbrel ........not a bad haul.

And a similar count on Saturday with just one Great shear seen.

These Two Chough were seen both day's, and were this years juv's from the Lizard.
