Sooty Shearwater 1 looked virtually black with hands swept-back. Silvery
underwing coverts visible.
Manx Shearwater c.3
Wilson’s Storm-Petrel c.4 Short but broad pale panel across the upperwing coverts.
Feet projecting beyond tip of tail. Appeared very slightly larger and
rounder-winged than Storm-Petrels. One bird seen dancing across the water close
to the boat. Superb.
Storm-Petrel c.250 broad white bands across underwing coverts seen only at
close range when underwings appeared very black and white. Couldn’t see a
narrow wing bar across the upperwing greater coverts suggestive of juvs. Superb
Sabine’s Gull 2 adult summer complete black hoods. Superb.
Lesser Black-backed Gull c.250
Herring Gull c.150
