20th - 21st July

Compensating for a lack of noteworthy avian sightings, the year's first Basking Shark, seen among a flock of feeding terns Kittiwakes and Gannets off Nouster Bay, was a nice find on the evening of the 20th. After dark, another session of tape-luring petrels resulted in 15 Storm Petrels and 2 Leach's Petrels being ringed at the observatory.
