1st June; Trip list

 I recieved a message from Richard Smith via Birdforum on their recent trip to Tory;

 Rather late but here is the Derry trio's bird list for 1st June. Quite a rough sea with swells up to 10 ft. Highlight of the day was Great Shearwater & at least 6 Basking Shark. See attached bird list. It was nice to meet Dublin birder Mark Stewart.
