There are staggering numbers of Manx Shearwaters being seen daily off the coast of mid-Wales, a true wildlife spectacle! Very difficult to estimate the numbers, they are over whelming, but a good guess would be at least 30,000 Manx Shearwaters! It is well worth seeing and surely there are rare Shearwaters amongst this mass feeding frenzy? Already one Balearic Shearwater has been picked out and more will follow for sure.
