No sooner had i recovered from the (in total) 5 hours journey for the Robin i was back on the road heading for Point Lynas on Anglesey, in the hope of catching some Storm Petrels. A slight reservation was the fact i thought maybe it was a tad early to be trying, but nothing ventured and all that. We arrived around 10pm and set a net, whilst setting we inadvertently caught a pipistrelle bat. Anybody know what type? Once the net was in place we played the lure but to no avail. So, no sign of stormies but Manx Shearwaters were calling close offshore, so a quick tweak of the amp and a few minutes later we had caught a Manxie, awesome. We processed it and returned to the net to find another, excellent 2 in the space of 25 minutes. Unfortunately that was our lot but a fabulous catch all the same, even if they are are on the vicious side! During the late night/early morning lull we got a surprise when a Quail gave a quick blast of song. With that we packed up and left at 2.30am arriving at Woolston 4.45am where i put in a shift. I must be mad.
