National Whale and Dolphin Watch – day 3

A short lunch time watch today. Very little to report and far too windy to have any chance of seeing our Porpoises. The six Common Scoters are sat on the same patch of sea that they were yesterday morning but there is no sign of Neil the Seal, perhaps the large numbers of kite surfers racing through the surf has frightened him off.
A big bonus was two Little Gulls winging their way south not too far behind the surf. Other stuff included on the horizon distant single Manx Shearwater and a couple of Gannets.

More news tomorrow. If the wind keeps up a Storm Petrel please.
PS. the Yanks sent up a space shuttle from Florida the other day so wet and windy weather is very likely next week too. Summer what summer?
In the meantime let us know what’s frightening off the wildlife in your outback.
