Madeira Pelagic Birding - 5th-7th August 2014

This Zino's Petrel Pelagic Expedition was named as "One of Each" with the nickname of "Half Noa's Ark" as, despite the good wind we had on the first 2 days we only got 1 bird of each species, except of course for Bulwer's petrel Bulweria bulwerii and Cory's shearwater Calonectris borealis which were all around and for Fea's petrels who were seen at least twice. But these birds were well observed close to the boat.
