|Cory's Shearwater Calonectris diomedea|
|Two dots over the sea - Gannets Morus bassanus|
Soon a flock of 7 fly-by YELKOUAN SHEARWATERS joined the show, but later we didn't relocate them. At a certain point we had both species in the same scope's view!
Of the larids 4 immature Little Gulls and 1 Med Gull were of note.
Around 19.00 pm, just before leaving the area I decided to do a last scan (to have a last look at the Cory's) and immediately saw two large birds flying high above the sea: GANNETS! An adult and an immature (juv). They remained on view for some time as they flew towards Trieste, only to disappear in the waves minutes later. This is also a second for the patch and of course, like the Cory's a local mega. All in all a good hour's seawatching.
