Scilly seabirds and a sunset

We went out on a pelagic last week (a boat trip to look for seabirds), it was pretty quiet bird wise but I managed to get a few pictures.

Great skua – a kleptoparasite i.e. it harries other seabirds to make them disgorge their food!

At the end of the trip we were treated to this magical sunset
