MA - Leach's Storm-petrels - 07/18

Leach's Storm-petrels provided yet another exciting element the BBC Extreme Pelagic on July 18th with good numbers (58 logged) being recorded throughout the warmer waters along the shelf edge. Most of the extreme pelagics that I've been on have produced one to three Leach's, but this particular day produced several small flocks composed entirely of this species! As with other storm-petrels, views were often fleeting but occasionally good.

Wilson's Storm-petrel. Seen throughout the day with close to 500 being recorded.
