Two more WILSON’S STORM PETRELS were the highlight of the second Cornwall Birding Pelagic out of St Ives this morning. The first was seen approximately 7 miles NNW of St Ives and the second a bit nearer land at 3.5 miles. With the wind SW, other birds were lacking and only three Manx Shearwaters were seen. Thirty European Storm-petrels followed the boat along with plenty of Gannet, Fulmar and Gulls.
