Bait balls; NEWT’s North Sea Pelagic 07/07/17

Our second 4hr evening pelagic last week sailed in calmer seas than on Wednesday and we headed north from the Tyne.  Searching for flocks of birds above bait balls of tiny fish we encountered Kittiwake, Guillemot, Razorbill, Fulmar and Gannet, including a flock that were plunge-diving just off Blyth.  ‘Crazy unexpected wildlife’ award for the evening went to a Hummingbird Hawk-moth that joined us off Blyth and eventually went to roost in the speaker of the boat’s tannoy system 🙂  We finished the evening with a spectacular sunset as we passed St Mary’s Island and flocks of Common Scoter heading north.
