Strumble: Porp's Auks and Divers!

We decided to go on to Strumble as the sea conditions were so good and do a click count. Although the porpoises were not too close we managed to record quite a few sightings which gave an average of 29.25 for the hour which is pretty good for the time of the year. Better still we had a beautiful mother and small calf!
There were also at least a dozen winter plumage Red Throated Divers floating by on the tide, along with whirring strings of auks constantly passing by, some of the strings consisted of more than 100 birds! Apologies for picture quality but everything was very distant!
