Scilly Pelagic 17/10/2016

On the way out to sea between the islands we saw an Osprey, 6 Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 2 Common Scoter and Grey Plover. It was quite choppy out towards the Seven Stones reef and we did not stay out there too long. Best birds were a Pomarine Skua that was right next to the boat and a couple of Sooty Shearwaters. There were also 4+ Bonxie, Balearic Shearwater, Storm Petrel and an unusual record of a Snow Bunting that flew around us a couple of times.
