Re: Hurlstone Pt

I was out on a boat on Friday from 0600 – 1800 in the area between Porlock and Lynmouth. Plenty of Gannets about, mainly non breeding juveniles. Lots of Parties of Manx Shearwaters but didn’t see any Balearics or Sootys however I did see one distant large Shearwater which I’m fairly sure was a Corys, it was about 2 miles off Glenthorne in Somerset. The other good bird was a Storm Petrel but it was off Lynmouth in Devon.
