30nm S of Start Point Devon
Yesterday out working on a fishing, 3 'dark phase' Fulmars in with the usual 'light phase' birds. Excellent neutral light conditions allowed these comparison shots (see below) of 'dark' phase with 'light phase". Although the scale of darkness is a gradient this would be a dark as opposed to a double dark. From seawatching experience I usually find Feb is the best month for them and they're out there! Also a group of Common Dolphins and 2 Bonxies.
