16 October 2016: Berry Head, near Brixham, Devon.

I had a spare hour or so on a relatively sunny afternoon so decided to visit Berry Head near Brixham in the hope that the Gannets would be fishing - there were quite a few Gannets flying but the little diving and fishing that was going on was way offshore. I alwys find it fascinating to see the different stages of the Gannet plumage, taking something like 4 or 5 years to get from the almost black first years to the beautiful adult colouring.



A solitary Guillemot - it always strikes me as strange to see soliatary ones or ssmall groups during the winter when the cliffs are alive with the breeding colony during the summer.







A small group of Razorbill



A juvenile Gull - Herring?


Porpoise cruising by



Cormorant


Shag diving in front of the local fishermen


Grey Squirrel cramming in as many berries as he can.
