My first digiscoped attempt of a bird since i got my SLR in 2006, i still havent improved much © Ashley Howe
On the Scillonian, back to Penzance, seawatching was well worth the effort, with c350 Manx passing. A juvenile Sabine's Gull picked out. Steve picked up on 2 Grey Phals. I had 2 Balearics. When Steve then noticed a large shear. It remained unidentified. But a second passed the boat at surprisingly close range revealing itself as a stunning Great Shearwater.
We spent the night at Porthgwarra, showing our hardcore birding capabilities again, kipping in the car.
