Cornwall, Looe - Marinelife Opportunistic Survey
The usual Gull species were present in numbers but nothing out of the ordinary. Of interest was a group of 16 Black-tailed Godwit in the morning and a solitary Sandwich Tern with the group of gulls following Swallow on the home run. It was frustrating to hear there were Pilot Whales in the area to the south of us and later a dolphin species yet to be identified off Looe Island. Sightings recorded by David Curtis during an Opportunistic Survey on board Swallow of Looe with skipper Murray Collings. More details on Pilot Whale and unidentified Dolphin Species sighitngs to follow shortly.
Cornwall, 2 miles South of Porthcurno
