Sailing back to Spain.
Trip to Uk, Day Thirty Eight.
|One of the new Aircraft carriers to replace the ones we can't scrounge of the French anymore.|
Andy and I were up early and soon sat in what seemed like a very slow moving que to board the Brittania Ferries boat the Galicia, the same boat I had come over on. Whilst were waiting we saw Black-headed (Gaviota Riedora / Larus ridibundus) and Herring Gull (Gaviota Argéntea Europea / Larus argentatus), Common Starling (Estornino Pinto / Sturnus vulgaris), Carrion Crow (Corneja Negra / Corvus corone), Feral (Paloma Bravía / Columba livia) and Woodpigeon (Paloma Torcaz / Columba palumbus).
|The Isle of wight I think, won't miss the battle ship grey skies of the UK.|
Once out to sea we did some birding, during the few hours out on deck we were pleased to see a single immature Sabine's Gull (Gaviota de Sabine / Larus sabini ), lots of Kittiwakes (Gaviota Tridáctila / Rissa tridactyla), good numbers of Atlantic Puffin ( Frailecillo Atlántico / Fratercula arctica) and other Auks but not close enough to ID, a Great Skua (Págalo Grande / Stercorarius skua) and lots of Northern Gannets (Alcatraz Atlántico / Morus bassanus).
It went dark so we went and had a drink before we had the evening meal and turned in.
