Was out in the Irish Sea last week doing a bit of surveying here's a few piccys and video of the trip.
Ornithologically we saw one Arctic Skua just off Hilbre Island, about 500+ Manx Shearwaters most sat on the sea in the mill pond like conditions. Lots of Guillemots many with youngsters a sign they've had a good breeding season. 100+ Gannets and Kittiwakes and one lone adult Little Gull. Add to that several close encounters with Grey Seals and three sightings of Harbour Porpoise made for a pleasant days
