Mindre lira - Puffinus puffinus - Manx Shearwater 
© NF Photo 120701  Ferry to Islay, Scotland

There were lots of those birds flying around. Too bad the ferry is so high it is hard to get close ups. It is the Ferry that stirs them out of the water.

For close ups on this bird see my Moroccan blog  Manx Shearwater

  4. Seeing the puffins is one of the things on my Bucket List. Have been to Scotland quilt a few times, but never out to the islands. Glad you got to see them from the ferry. Love the photos.
