Stormies - where ever next...?
We ask ourselves...
We abandoned our visit to our usual catching platform on the outer edge of the headland at Mwnt due to a un-predicted southwest wind. Instead we decided to set up near the lime kiln on the cliff to the south side of the beach. Two stormies were caught here, a location that we would describe as in the back of the bay.
Sheltered and almost inland compared to the headland out in front !!
Ageing Storm Petrels is difficult, .............sub-adult non-breeders every time ??
