A long-winged pelagic seabird, Puffinus puffinus, of the family Procellariidae.
Four species of Puffinus are recorded as visiting the coasts of the United Kingdom; but the Manx shearwater is the only one that at all commonly breeds in the British Islands.
Seabirds were surprisingly scarce, a few Manx Shearwater near Penzance being the highlight.
There are numerous Atlantic Gray Seal on this coast and we may see passing Manx shearwater.
In calm, sunny conditions the sea was very quiet with nothing better than a single Manx shearwater passing through off the Bill.
Also on the pelagic 20 Manx shearwater were seen well south of the islands flying strongly southwest, migrating?
