Saturday 4th May

puffin
A four hour and a two hour trip today. We were expecting an easterly breeze but it wasn’t as choppy as it could have been, and there was warm sunshine. This morning we explored the coast along to Nanjizal, spotting several grey seals in different places as well as a good variety of seabirds including an adult puffin in bright breeding plumage. There were no fins to be seen – as we always say May, while it’s a great month for spotting breeding seabirds, is often inconsistent for cetacean activity. The coast is looking wonderful at the moment with all the bluebells still out.¬† This afternoon we headed east past the Mount to Cudden where we spotted a sleepy¬† seal, then had a good sail across the bay accompanied by masses of gliding shearwaters.
