Scillonian Crossing - Manxies

I always have the camera ready on the crossing (just in case) but there were no birds of significance seen (apart from a Balearic Shearwater from the other side of the ship), a few Common Dolphins, a Sunfish and 100's of Manx Shearwaters, mostly on the Cornish side.

Some of the Manxies came close enough for record shots? They are always fun to try and capture......

Skimming the waves and using the wind so effortlessly!

 Upperwing sequence......

They will probably be ignored on the pelagics as we search for the more aristocratic cousins but for now, they got me into the swing of things and it's all systems go!
