Another interesting "Stena Europe" ferry Survey. As we leave from Fishguard and these were in Pembrokeshire waters I hope this counts as Fishguardish! The weather is as unpredictable as ever and so we jumped aboard at half a days notice. The outward trip was extremely calm and  it was nice to see plenty of sea birds such as Shearwaters and puffins as well as one difficult to identify small skua . It looked dark all over and was probably a dark phase Arctic Skua but as it was mainly flying away from us hard to be positive.
My first Cuckoo of the year heard somewhere over towards Goodwick and several swifts seenthat probably came in with it.
