The sea looked more like the south Atlantic this morning. A fantastic southerly swell, huge white horses and the gannets and fulmars flying in slow motion into the gale like albatrosses. The run of south-easterlies has really churned up the sea. The run-off from the fields from the apocalyptic rainfall over the weekend has added to the murk so it must be very difficult for any of the seabirds that fish close inshore. There are already a few lethargic looking shags on the rocks at Roome Bay, barely stirring as people go by. When the storms have passed I should think there will be a few bodies along the strandline.

Fulmar - our own albatross
