Sea Bird Spectacular Fishguard Harbour.

What looked like a snow storm at the mouth of Fishguard Harbour attracted our attention when Ken and Leo the porp hound popped into the Ocean Lab. We decided it needed checking out so headed out to the breakwater A lot of the gulls had dispersed when we got there a couple of hundred now gathering around the Cow and Calf rocks

When we got to the end of the breakwater there were rows of Auks, Razorbills and Guillemots  
probably getting on for 300+

Also a few hundred gulls mainly black headed but also plenty of Herring and a fair few commons.

sadly there were no cetaceans visible but there must have been some pretty spectacular amount of small fish arounfd to have attracted such a throng of birds!
