Scilly pelagic no 4 - Great Shearwater

A mizzle /drizzle start to the morning but it eventually cleared up and three Great Shearwaters put in appearance, the first two coming within range. Here's the first one.....






Don't you just hate wave creasts!!


The second bird came within frame filling distance!



Within touching distance?


See what I mean!


(Just when I thought it couldn't get better than this, tomorrow was about to prove me wrong!!)

Another 1st summer Long-tailed Skua.....



Despite the Shearwaters and Skua, star birds of the day were the stormies.... up next.....
