Seawatching season starts now

One of my favourite aspects of birding in Cornwall is the annual movement of seabirds from July to September.  Spectacular movements of around 800 Cory's hearwater have already been seen off Porthgwarra.  I managed to see five off Pendeen last week, one giving quite close views, though still too distant for photography.  The shots below were taken from a pelagic last year.  Hopefully I will be able to get on a couple over the next month or so.
