About Me

I am a novice to birding and have become interested since walking Frank our dog, a cross Flat Coat / Springer around Hastings Country Park and the surrounding area, I realised the little brown birds weren't just sparrows.

Scilly Pelagic




Friday 1st August we took the Scillonion to Scilly see on the way Manx Shearwaters, Gannets and a Storm Petrel. Later that evening in the rain went out of St.Mary's on a pelagic seeing Manx, Great and Cory's Shearwater, Kittiwak, usual Gulls and a Storm Petrel. With dark skies and a grey sea the light was poor for photos.

Saturday brought warm sunshine and our trip turned up better views of both Cory's and Great Shearwaters, more Storm Petrels, one Wilson's Storm Petrel, a pod of Common Dolphins and a Leather-backed Turtle.
