Zino's Petrel !

Photo by Harro Muller

Following up on our recent pelagic we discovered some better images of the Pterodroma petrel we had. The images were sent to Bob Flood who has identified it as a Zino's Petrel. More details will appear in Bob and Ashley's forthcoming multi-media id guide of Pterodroma petrels.

Geolocation studies have revealed that aside from Maderia, the Azores is the best place to see Zino's Petrel during the breeding season (between April and September).

This is the first 'sight' record for the Azores.
