    What an incredible experience, that was the first I have seen the sea that calm, a very dry day right up until the end when we hit the bullseye on the way back in with a huge flock of mixed birds about 5klm's off shore.
    The star of the show was a brief glimpse of a Red Billed Tropicbird, and a potential Skua (I initially thought it was a large Gull) seen by Huw, but it disappeared, Derek and Huw mentioned that it would probably have been mobbed so moved on. This is my eBird list.
