St Ives

After strong southwesterlies over the weekend the wind moved around to the northwest on Monday and provided a very large seabird movement past St Ives Bay: Little Auk, Balearic Shearwater, Sabine's Gull, Great, Pomarine and Arctic Skuas, Black-throated Diver were among the highlights.

Here are a few images taken later in the day.
