Stormy Strumble dairy

Wdig birder, Adrian Rodger and my old mate Ricardo Davies got there before us and clocked up a few nice birds, We hung in there for an hour trying to get some pic's or video but failed to get any of the four or five porpoises we glimpsed in the mountainous seas. Maybe we should have been with Adrian a bit earlier to get the porp's but we did clock up another Manxie for him, and a Skua Sp. ... (Probably a Juv Pom)
