A shear delight

The other month a Cory’s Shearwater was reported off Sheringham in Norfolk. Great birds Shearwaters; they are birds of the open oceans only coming to land to breed. We visited some breeding caves within lava flows on Pico in the Azores a few years ago but we also got our fill of them in February this year during our visit to the Canaries. As we travelled from Tenerife to La Gomera on the inter-island ferry they were flying with the ship, sometimes coming quite close.
