Scilly Pelagic no 2 - evening BIG three again

Despite the gloomy conditions, lumpy sea and drizzle, another good haul of seabirds from a 5.00 evening start...

Whilst Cory's stole the limelight the previous evening,  a mere 6 showed up...


Compared to an amazing 39 Great Shearwaters effortlessly looping up and down.




This one ate all the pies - barely able to be airborne!!


But in their element among the waves


Skimming but rarely touching the water!




A few Storm Petrels joined in the fun...


And keeping the BIG 3 target going, two more Wilson's Petrel Record shots as ever, these were the best of a dodgy batch :-)




The forecast for the morning looks good 20mph Westerly ....
