Cory's Shearwater (Calonectris diomedea)

A large Shearwater, breeding in the Mediterranean and S E Atlantic which can be seen from strategic coastal hotspots throughout the UK. Even better, it can be seen at close quarters from boats and these images were taken from Scilly Pelagics during August 2014 when large numbers of these birds pass through the area.
