Today however come lunch time the wind was blowing a hooley from the South West. I though ah well Workington will be worth ago, it was hissing it down so i wasn't gonna do owt else.
When i arrived at Workington the first 10 min i sat and watched from the car. loads and loads of Manxies close up too, then a small seabird but lost in the wave as soon as saw it, i was too low down to stay on anything. That was probably a Storm Petrel but oh well.
So i moved to the pier i could look much better into the troughs of the waves now. No more Petrels though, bugger. Heres what i did see though.
In 2hours 40 minutes a very Conservation 2,400 Manxies . No rarity unfortunately.
60 - 70 Fulmar although some were back n forward
3 Puffin, Guillemots and Razorbills, Kittiwakes and Gannets plenty
9 Sandwich Tern.
