Last night's Brixham pelagic

A very pleasant trip in good conditions. A highlight was feeding flocks of manx shearwaters with a few balearics among them, sat on the water and constantly flying up to do shallow plunge dives; exactly what they were doing only became clear from looking at the photos.
