A trio of boobies.

A good week for boobies- although only observed in low numbers, this juvenile red footed booby makes it three species in 5 days. Having done the obligatory 'eat the flying fish' routine it decided to settle on a mast allowing for some portrait shots to be taken. I have also had a brief visit from a bottlenose dolphin and a distant frigate bird sp. Some autumnal bird migration has started with a few more pomarine skuas, a single great shearwater and several distant wader spp. all flying south. Hopefully something unusual will pass within range of my lens before too long!
