Rossall Point, Lancashire - 1st July 2007

Above: 1 of 5 Grey Seal

11.05-14.00 - Sea Watch off Rossall Point inc.

7 Manx Shearwater, 2 Arctic Skua (2 Dark Morph), 2 Little Egret flew north, 41 Whimbrel Flew South, 2 Common Scoter, 34 Gannet, 5 Common Tern, 2 Arctic Tern, 56 Sandwich Tern, male Red Breasted Merganser, 11 Cormorant.

[5 Grey Seal, Bottlenose Dolphin*]

* Bottlenose Dolphin was a real Surprise, as I thought that I would have been lucky to get Harbour Porpoise, but obviously not! Lets hope this sort of thing Continues...Minke Whale Next time...???
Red Breasted Merganser was new for the year (amazingly!) The Manxies were new to lancashire for me, and the Skuas were a nice sightings, as 2007 is a new year for them, for me anyway.
