Manx Shearwater

Manx Shearwater - John Pethullis

 

Sean spotted two Manx Shearwaters, Puffinus puffinus,  at sea today (Thursday 16th May 2013) the first he’s seen this year.  So  it seemed appropriate to share another of John Pethullis’s wonderful photo of a Manx Shearater with you.  Think you’ve got to agree it stunning, isn’t it..?

Manx Shearwaters spend their winters on the coast of South America, while they breed here in the UK, though mainly on the west coast, as well as in Iceland, the Faroes, Shetlands and Orkneys, the west coast of Brittany as well as the smaller Mediterranean island.
