New Brighton,
A trip through the tunnel for the storm petrel festival was well worth the trip. With winds strong enough to wobble Greg Norman , 4 storm petrels gave me reasonable views mid channel just before high tide. A drive down to the coastguard station was productive with 6 distant manxies and 2 artic squas during a half hour watch there.
I then visited the gordale garden centre, close to Burton, where the national exhibition of wildlife artists is on until the 3 August. Well worth a visit if you like wildlife art.
