Pterodroma Time Of The Year

Went down to Cape Pembroke this evening hoping to see some Pterodroma petrels as the wind is blowing 35knots from the North East.


It did not take long for the first Atlantic Petrels to show followed soon after by a second & third bird, Then a Soft Plumaged Petrel showed very close inshore followed by 2 more Atlantic Petrels.


March – May is a good time of the year to see both of these Petrels from shore if there is a good Easterly wind blowing.

Spot the Atlantic Petrel………..yes there is one in the picture


Yesterday I saw my first Cattle Egrets of the year and today saw two flocks of 5 & 7 on the outskirts of Stanley.
