Hello All

Check this out. This is from my friend and all round amazing angler Richard Squid Steel (winner of the countryfile calander picture In Flight Meal)

Every year there is a spectacular seabird event in mid Wales that very few people know about. Manx Shearwaters congregate in ~~~~~ Bay during mid-August and this year's numbers have been spectacular. Despite putting the word out only four birders have witnessed the event up to now!
An estimated 50,000+ Manx Shearwaters feed in he bay with many feeding in the surf only yards from the beach. This year 15+ Balearic Shearwaters, 2 Sooty Shearwaters, 200+ Gannet, Great Skua, Sandwuch, Common and Arctic Terns, Auks, Cormornats, Gulls, Fulmars and Ocean Sunfish were present.

The videos below show a snippet of the action on a short stretch of the beach at #####. however the spectacle stretches for 3 to 4 miles without a break along to the mouth of the ~~~~~~~.
I know videos can't do justice to the real event but I hope this gives you a flavour of this spectacular event...

The birds are not there for no good reason. Must be huge accumulations of bait fish which means there should be a good number of predators lurking about, if you get the drift.

Nice one Richard (edited to prevent netting)
