Fea’s Petrel

‘nough said

Picked up by Andy Malley and  Brett Richards most of the ensemble at Flamborough were delighted. Thanks guys. I rushed off to find signal in the hope that those further north would score too. The resulting communications via social media and ‘twitches’ to watchpoints along the east coast meant the wheeling pterodroma was recorded at multiple sites by lots of people. A triumph for modern birding  and AT LAST a British record for me 🙂 Photos skilfully phonescoped by Mark Newsome off Whitburn Fea's type Whitburn 210914 M Newsome
