Shearwaters, Skua's and Terns

2 Balearic Shearwaters with 2 Arctic Skuas
 Being tied with domestic stuff most of the day and being told by AJG that the sea passage was pretty good,  it was good to get to finally get to the fishing boats this afternoon.
15.00-16.30 when passage appeared to stop with the rain arriving.
