Quite a bit of movement this morning off Hurlstone. Amongst the feeding auks were 3 Puffins. There were a minimum of 35 Razorbills and 34 Guillemots but probably more than this with a number just drifting on the tide. A protracted movement of Manx Shearwaters back west with 652. A flock of 9 adult Med Gulls flew west followed by 4 more later and the first returning Black-headed Gulls. Also from here 9 Fulmars, 16 Gannets, 13 Kittiwakes, 1 Shag and then 2 Grey Herons flew high along the coast also to the west.
Feeding as well 6 Harbour Porpoises and a bull Grey Seal.
