Early in the morning we received news from cape Peñas (Asturias), 150 km to the east. A Black-browed Albatross flying westwards had been watched by Jorge Valella! This species has been watched twice at Estaca de Bares. We waited for the bird untl the end of the day. But it didn't show up.
Anyway, we had some nice sightings. A Fulmar flying high over us eastwards was a great one. This is not a common species here (last year we watched more Fea's / Madeira petrels than fulmars). We also watched two Scopoli's Shearwaters and two Sooty Shearwaters, and a late group of Common Scoters flying to the east.
Northern Gannets moved westwards (116 birds / hour), as well as Manx Shearwaters (in tiny groups), while Sandwich Terns kept moving eastwards in little numbers. Other birds seen where Great Skua (1), Cory's Shearwater and Balearic Shearwater.
We also watched two pods of Bottlenose Dolphins and a very close Long - Finned Pilot Whale.
