The Sea

The return from Rhodes harbour to Panormitis on the Skiadenni was relatively calm and eventless on Sunday with lots of holiday makers doing a day trip to Symi. I didn't expect to see any of the three shearwaters on the crossing (Cory's, Yelkouan or storm petrel) as they were likely to be concerned with bringing up their young but an adult mediterranean shag and its young caught my eye off Seskli island.
