Last day of seawatching.

Birders were assembled at Rhos Point due to the North westerley wind that pushed birds into the bay. As they round the Little Orme they pass Rhos Point and the comfort of watching from he car tempts many here. 200+ Leach's Petrels again today along with adult Pomerine Skua, 7 Arctic Skua, 4 Bonxies, Balearic Shearwater, Great Northern Diver, Velvet Scoter, 6 Black Tern and several Kittiwakes, 10+ Red throated Diver and a movement of Auks, Sandwich Terns, Common and Arctic Terns, Gannet and Fulmars. The wind continued throughout the day but by evening had calmed considerably. Adrian Foster did really well to capture these images in the evening gloom.
