White Beaks

An excellent trip yesterday down south and then on to Huntress 2 into Lyne Bay For White Beaked Dolphins and whatever birds we came across.It took two and a half hours to get out to the Dolphin site where they showed upon arrival.Some came as close as 10 Ft to the boat.Very difficult to photograph fast moving objects when the boats rocking from side to side as well.
Best of the trip were:
20+ White Beaked Dolphins
2 Balearic Shearwaters
20-30 Manx Shearwaters
1 Arctic Skua
2 Great Skuas
3 Common Scoters and millions of Gannet and Fulmar.
