The weather forecast today was supposed to be a North Westerly gusting over 30 mph at times so I went to Pendeen to photograph some of the rarer seabirds on their way south. I got stuck to the bed sheets and didn't get on site until 1100am. The few birders that was on site was leaving, as the wind had veered North East. When this happens the birding switchs off at Pendeen. I stayed until 1600 and got some shots of this close Bonxie (Great Skua) and some Gannet shots as a feeding frenzy took place relatively close, but generally it was poor for birding but a superb day weather wise. All images were taken with a Nikon D300 and a Sigma300/800 f5.6 zoom
