info

I don’t know if I ever have a chance to take any photos of Manx shearwaters which will be different from the pictures that I have taken of fluttering shearwaters or Mediterranean shearwaters. A huge distance, a momentary flight and that’s how the contact with this species always ends, so does an attempt to take shots. This time was the same. That’s why the start-up gallery has a symbolical character, but it’s neither the first nor the last time. The Manx shearwater weighs about 400 grams and has a wingspan of approximately 80 centimeters.

During the expedition to see the procellariiformes on the Atlantic Ocean near the Isles of Scilly I had an opportunity to improve the content of the manx shearwater gallery. A few documentary photos have been completed with new pictures.
