Scilly Pelagic - Wilson's Petrel supershow!

It was surely just a matter of time before we connected with a Wilson's Petrel and today it all came good... Not just any old Wilson's though, this was a showy bird personified as is zipped, pogo'd and displayed as good as any I've seen for well over an hour!

The classic moment to catch!




But it giving just about every possible angle to capture - if you could keep up with it!!





Just about captured the 'pogo' flight technique, just look at those long legs...




An the moment everyone like to see / capture - them yellow webs :-)


Putting it all together, I'll settle for this moment as my favourite....


And it was still in the wake behind the boat as we steamed in - couldn't shake it off either!
