Little Orme Seawatching

With a fair decent NW'lys blowing, I decided to try my luck down on the Little Orme for a bit of seawatching. Spent 2 hours leading up to high tide and it seemed to get better as time went on:

4 Arctic Skuas (3 Dark morph/ 1 pale)
Constant stream of 200+ Manxies - some appeared close, but no Balearics today!!
3 Fulmar
60+ Kittiwakes
A good stream of Terns, of which the majority were Sandwich
A handful of Gulls (Black headed, Herring, and LBB)
2 Oystercatchers
1 Curlew
Mixed flock of 10 Guillimots and Razorbills
10+ Gannets
3 Shags and over 30 Cormorants

...and a Linnet (yes, flying over the sea!)
