First Manxies of spring!

Our first Stena Ferry Survey of the year was quite successful with three species of cetacean recorded including Porpoise Common dolphin and Bottlenose Dolphins, Bird-wise we saw ten manxies 7 yesterday 3 today, (sorry no pic's) the first of the year including one off Strumble so perhaps the first Pemb's Manxie of the year, unless Ed knows better? 

also this morning several migrating Pipit's passing the ship! Interestingly what used to be a thriving colony of Black Guillemots in Rosslare Harbour of 20+ pairs has in the past couple of years reduced to only two or three pairs!
