Scilly Pelagic no 11 - Wilson's finale

The final session for me aboard Sapphire and with a steady westerly wind of 15 knots we headed South for Petrels?



Here's a Great Skua on the way out.....



Another adult Sabine's Gull.....



Which loitered not far from the boat for quite some time but rarely coming in.....




Numerous Storm Petrels around the boat once again but eventually... One, TWO, three - make that FOUR Wilson's Petrels as the light was beginning to become 'difficult' but showing supremely well.....






Two in a row tip-toeing the waves, long legs dangling.....


And not the best image but showing the yellow webs nicely!


Eleven pelagics done! And that's NINE Wilson's personally for the trip - can't be bad :-)
