Lovely bird and with the bit of white above it's eye, it looks as though it could be winking at you. Have a great weekend Hugh~

That's a truly great image.

We get tens or even hundreds of thousands of these passing offshore in mid May but they are well out at sea and impossible to photograph (unless I chartered a boat and even then i'm sure they'd fly off).
