Celtic Deep trip

We try and take a few trips out each year to see some wildlife and give our volunteers a bit of a treat. On the evening of Saturday 13th of August we took a trip out to the Celtic Deep, which lies around 25 miles SW of Skomer, to look for seabirds (especially storm petrels) and cetaceans. As you can see we were successful. We saw over 40 Storm Petrels, plenty of Common Dolphins, as well as two Great Skuas and a Sooty Shearwater, and everyone involved had a wonderful time. What an amazing area we live in!
