Scilly pelagic no 3 - Sooty Show!!

It's easy to get carried away with concentrating on the BIG three target birds and whilst Sooty Shearwaters are usually 'around', they can be a bit standoffish? Today however, one or two showed really well!  So to pay tribute, here's a dedicated post...

Just clipping the water on the big dipper swell?


Or climbing the stairs?


Maybe having a rest!


Then off for more action...









A separate fly-by in duller conditions...




And finally, banking back down to the waves. Despite the name its not a 'black' Shearwater at all but an attractive seabird indeed!
