My most sincere congratulations for this highly interesting record and for the nice photo. I haven't seen this species in my two pelagic trips to Raso (Nov. 2010 and March 2018), but we could watch very well several Fea's Petrels Pterodroma feae in both.

Beste pic of a WP sighting of this species!

Thanks Diedert, Rubén and Max! We tried chumming on the way to Raso and it was a disaster hardly anything, so I had kind of given up seeing anything good when we started heading back! :-)

Hi again.

In my experience, the pelagic trip from Tarrafal (S. Nicolau) to Raso is one of the best in the Macaronesian archipelagos, not only for seabirds, but also for whales and dolphins. Another good trip is from Funchal (Madeira) to the Desertas Islands...

Best regards.
