Newquay Pelagic

South West Optics’ Steve Rogers organised another North Cornwall pelagic today, this time from Newquay and on a faster boat (with toilets!), the Atlantic Diver. At 30 knots the boat soon powered to 20 miles NNW of Newquay. No Wilsons this time but great views of Balearic Shearwater, Sooty Shearwater (2), Storm Petrel (80), Arctic Tern, Arctic Skua and Great Skua and large numbers of migrating Common Terns. The sea conditions were  much calmer this time so we look forward to Steves photos appearing on his blog soon.
