Manx shearwater

Single manx shearwater coming up Parret on tide past Dunball wharf (N of Bridgwater ST306408) at 0930 today. First seen swimming with tail erect like a "stiff tail" Then diving for long periods and surfacing briefly with just head above water before diving again, when very easy to overlook. Assumed to be a stray juv as this isn't 'wreck' weather.
