Mini pelagic - Spoonbill finale

With hopes of some decent sea birds, I joined in with a very busy 'mini' pelagic trip on Sapphire. An early Balearic Shearwater got things going but apart from Arctic Tern there was not a lot seen out at sea! We did however get close up to Purple Sandpiper, plenty of Sanderling plus cracking views of the Green Island Spoonbill before returning to harbour.....

It clearly wasn't troubled by the onlookers!

At first that is.....

And eventually decided to put on an air display!

Having missed Pom Skua and Grey Phalarope recently, fingers crossed for a later pelagic??
