Monday's Pelagic Part 1/ Cory's Shearwaters

On last nights Pelagic 5 miles SE of St Mary's  the wind was SW 5-6 with a 3 to 4 meter swell we saw 30 of these Cory Shearwaters. Cory Shearwaters breed on islands and cliffs in the Mediterranean, with the odd outpost on the Atlantic coast of Iberia.. In late summer and autumn, most birds migrate into the Atlantic as far north as the south-western coasts of Great Britain and Ireland. They return to the Mediterranean in February.
