New Quay

I spent most of the morning seawatching from the fish factory.  Much as I enjoyed watching the thousands of Manx Shearwaters and hundreds of Gannets and Kittiwakes I was hoping for something different.
Only a few auks around, mostly Guillemots, plus the odd Fulmar and occasional glimpses of Bottle-nosed Dolphins.
In the end I had to make do with 70 Common Scoter (67 south, 3 north), six Whimbrel and a single Sandwich Tern passing.
