There weren't that many folk there considering. Several of these had been here the previous day and had come back for more. It's nice to see a good mix of sexes and ages for a change.
Note the glorious weather too....it didn't last.
A few hours later the weather's very different and only three remain. Can't see them? Well this is another occasion where my super-zoom 'comes into its own'
Taken from the same spot, here's one of them and my empty chair. I'd wandered off to try and get a photo of the Gannets which were passing close below but that's where my super-zoom lets itself down, they were just too quick for it to focus on. Still here's one of my better efforts.
After the initial couple of hours of good seawatching we spent most of our time like this..
...and even this.
The group of women walking by in the background were laughing at Bun's lack of British character in hiding from a spot of rain. What else could it have been?
There are two Great Shearwaters in this view, honestly!
Great Shearwater passing some distance behind the Runnel Stone.
This is the closest one that I managed to 'photograph'. Shockingly bad but if you look closely you can actually see the white collar and tail patch.
A crop of the previous photo.
The views were a gazillion times better than these lame images would have you believe. Still, I'd love to see one from a boat someday.
Finally, recycling at its best! How ingenious. Great use for an old welly.
