Shearwater 11 August 2018 Isle of Man

An interesting dusky (and distant) Shearwater showing dark hood (without white chinstrap), dark vent and armpit straps (though not all are visible in the pics). In the field, this bird felt heavier and dumpier than accompanying Manxies but this is not conveyed in the pics.

There's a lot of variation amongst Manx Shearwaters ...
