Grimsby Boat Trip 6th August 2022

This is an exploratory trip to offshore Lincs with no guarantees about birds or weather, but the date gives lots of scope for shearwaters, petrels, auks and skuas. We expect to be chumming with mackerel caught by the boat crew. The boat is the The Predator and will depart from Grimsby Number 2 Fish Dock around 8 a.m. and return at approx. 8 pm.
