From Borth cliffs, close offshore rafts of manx shearwater thousands strong and hundreds of gannets. An endless convey-a-belt of activity moving around the bay and culminating in a feeding frenzy. Diving gannets, bobbing to surface like corks, shearwater less elegantly crash into the water at a shallow angle, almost head over heels and then more mass movement as the gannets take off and the manxies follow to the next attack. Snorkeling around the rocks later, find the water thick with sprat and also grey mullet. Image is a monoprint of the days drawing frenzy.
