Wavehunters trip out for wildlife. 7th May 2019

A pleasant trip out into Port Isaac Bay and onward towards Trebarwith & back via Gulland courtesy of Andy Cameron at Wavehunters, Padstow.

Sadly no cetaceans but some good birds, especially around a shoal of fish a couple of miles out that produced diving gannets, kittiwakes, manx shearwaters and auks.


Here are a few images, including 503 guillemots I counted (via my computer screen!) on the Mouls.
