Scilly Pelagic no 4 - The Ultimate part 2

One sure thing about a Shearwater on the water is the fact that it will eventually fly! And with so much going on, the panic of missing out on another frenzy meant take off moments were commonplace!

Not exactly Usain Bolt but once this Great Shearwater gets to full speed, its up up and away...







Having commented that I'd rarely seen Cory's Shearwater on the water, it was magic to watch them return to the air!










Meanwhile back on the water... We all know the outcome of plastic of plastic items at sea? They are there for a long long time!


But this Cory's was attempting in vain to recycle this bucket lid!



A backlit Sooty Shearwater...



And here's the Balearic Shearwater we had all been hoping for too! 








Finally,  a resume of yet another BIG three, successfully notched up!

Cory's Shearwater...


Great Shearwater ...


Wilson's Petrel...


The day isn't done yet!!
