Sunday 8th July 2018

The bird news today was limited to a Hobby over the car park at Crook Ness at 10.40 and 2 Honey Buzzards were reported from at the Wykeham Raptor View Point.

However it was the cetaceans that stole the show today with multiple and prolonged sightings of both Minke Whales and White-beaked Dolphins. Up to three Minke Whales were seen off Long Nab and a couple hung around for a while in North Bay; 5 Bottlenose Dolphins went south off Long Nab about 10.30 and 3 White-beaked Dolphins went north off Long Nab at 10.58. White-beaked Dolphins were also in North and South Bay in the afternoon with a maximum of 6 being reported.
