Hutton's/Fluttering Shearwater

Passed in front of the boat in inshore waters on the return leg. Suggested as likely Fluttering on brief views but disappeared before ID could be confirmed.

1

Called as a Pom Jaeger as it approached from the east in deep water beyond the shelf, but as it got closer it became apparent that the trailing appendages were not spoon-tipped streamers but long legs!

2

In deep pelagic waters, flew past together from further out to sea. Unexpected!

9

Flyovers of twos and threes in inshore waters on the way out.
