Cor(y), Blimey! Or, 652 Not 'Owt!

BirdGuides today, if you lived in Cornwall or Cork, what a shearwater-fest!

1200+ Cory's past Galley Head, and 150 in THIRTY minutes; 652 past Porthgwarra. 

So in the event that one had a malfunctioning compass and had gone right at Land's End and not left, off to N-b-t-S for tea time.

Final score - nil nil.

Loads of Guillemots on the sea, and Gannets feeding close in.  Kittiwakes and Fulmars south, and one Puffin on his/her lonesome.

Not a sniff of a shearwater or a skua or anything remotely pulse-racing but at least the weather was fine!
