Strumble repays the time put in!

Richard Stonier had a phenomenal day at Strumble yesterday with several good birds as well as three species of Cetacean. His 12 hour watches and superb observation skills put most of us in the shade!


c.15 Common Dolphin from Strumble between 0900 and 1030. Started out distant at 11o’clock, moved East, then at 2o’clock came close inshore (tide race range) where they were joined temporarily by a large bottlenose (could only see one). The Commons then left to the West along the tide race.

Basking Shark seen well at tide-race range at 1545.

Porps showing very well after 4pm.
