Strumble Diary 19 April

Thanks Steve for the previous post. If it’s anything like today you should have a good day and plenty of porps.

Today’s session started slow as yesterday but there were more distant sightings with the calm sea and good viz. First sightings were very distant (ferry range) but gradually they worked their way up the tide flow closer to the lookout. I was joined for a while by a family from South Wales where on seeing porps the broad smile and exclamations of joy were amazing and that was just the dad. The eldest of the three children showed an interest and knowledge beyond his years and it was pure joy to see him soak in the information like a sponge with so many intelligent questions coming back my way. A young naturalist in the making I’m sure and if you read this and I hope you will it was a great pleasure to meet you all. Toward the end of the session the porps were still busy feeding along a good length of the tide race with several gannets in attendance. I ended the session approx 12.45pm.
