Sooty Shearwater and a scarce Northern Fulmar

Todays RSPB Skua & Shearwater cruise resulted in two highlights.

Firstly getting 3 x Sooty Shearwaters Puffinus griseus, all of which gave really good views while on the water.



Secondly getting a "blue" Northern Fulmar. Fulmarus glacialis glacialis
Blue is actually grey and describes a northerly breeding bird from Arctic waters which is far more common further north.


and a good comparison to the normal white headed Fulmar behind
