A day on St.George's island Looe, Cornwall 2nd February 2018.

Mediterranean Gull


A good day out on Looe island today for the monthly seal survey and species count.

The seals were limited to 2 individuals which were hauled out on the rocks in the distance so not really photographable for more than an ID record.

However there were some good birds about including up to 8 Mediterranean Gulls, a lone Whimbrel, Great black backs and breeding cormorants.
