A round trip on the ferry produced no exceptional birds but very  large numbers of shearwaters with only 3 Manx. One feeding flock  contained 1,500-2000 birds. 2 Pomarine and 2 parasitic jaegers, 15  "comic" terns and 3 identified as Arctic. A juvenile laughing gull at  swallowtail was later at the whistle. Several Humpbacks and 2 Rights  were also seen.
