Scilly Pelagic no 5 - Yet another BIG 3

The wind had picked up slightly to a 15mph westerly as we gathered together at the quay. Evening pelagics are shorter and have a more limited chance of attacting Wilson's Petrel so it was with quite a relief that two were attracted to the oily slick this evening...

Here's the distant second bird.

It was also hard work on the Cory's Shearwater front with just 3 seen

12 Great Shearwater came by however including this group of four giving a close pass

On quiet evenings, time to pay attention to one of the ever present birds - Fulmar pics for a change!

Oh and Bella was happy, it was Common Dolphin time!!

And courtesy of Richard Stonier, the track taken this evening!
