Walked around the base of the Autelets to get a better look at the Guillemots while the morning sun was on the rock. Found a nice big, flat boulder and set up my scope on the tripod and observed the birds for an hour before the tide meant a hasty return back through the arch to Port du Moulin. Lovely bright orange/red seaweed in the pools (Delesseria sanguinea), whose fronds resemble leaves in that they have a distinct midrib and veins. Also a few lovely examples of the Strawberry anemone, which is a strikingly beautiful species of large anemone found only in the English Channel and on the South coast of Britain.
