Clutching at straws ?

  • Pictures show what might be the first documented record of Mascarene Black Petrel on open sea. Picture taken in January, somewhere between Madagascar and Reunion. According to the scientists working on the species on La Reunion the pictures show a very good candidate, however I´m by far not sure. Any Comments? (I know, they are the worlds worst record shots...)

I think I have seen one of those off Porthcawl!

Looks like a Bulwer's-type to me so why not a Jouanin's Petrel?
