Scilly Pelagic no 1 - Shearwaters!!

Carrying on where the Scillonian left off, Manx Shearwaters were ever present during this evenings pelagic...

A bit closer and more obliging than the trip over :-)

We were into large Shearwaters too pretty soon this evening and 8 Great Shearwaters demonstrated their prowess over the waves in a mere 10mph NW breeze...

But the main event was an excellent showing from Cory's Shearwaters, with an estimated 28 on offer, some passing close!

Epic stuff and with two Wilson's Petrel joining the party (coming soon) , the big 3 achieved first outing ...

NB First processing on my laptop this year so the copyright logo states 2016, these are all 2017!!
