Once again Andy chose 'well with the weather' - as the afternoon into early evening progressed we were blessed with ever calmer conditions. As well as seeing the spectacular and only Ganetry of Wales we saw four species of Gull (GBBGull + HGull + LBBGull and a spectacular evening roost of many hundred Kittiwakes on Grassholm)
There were also the odd stragglers of the days morning migration of Swallows and Martins from Ireland, a couple of Turnstone on Grassholm and, on our travels a Storm petrel, rafting Manxies in a glorious sunset, approximately six different sightings of Porpoise and of course a lovely twilight encounter with Common Dolphins near St Ann's head.
My interest is primarily to study Marine Wildlife and my photographs reflect my interest in capturing the moment of contact, action and behaviour to further research and provide images for the marine talks and studies I undertake.
I have a few talks in mind and this trip enabled me to get some great material, Juv Gannets leaving Grassholm and setting off on their 25 years of life, the size of chick's compared to mum and dad, the aggression shown by adults to chic's etc etc - thanks Andy - lovely trip and good company on board as well.
