    Ringed Storm-Petrel

    One of the most beautiful and unusual storm petrels, easily my favorite lifer from that day!
  2. Markham's Storm-Petrel

    Markham's Storm-Petrel

    Of the four storm petrel species we saw that day, this was by far the least common, only making a couple of appearances.

    Another storm petrel off the east coast of the north island N.Z. Capturing the walking is always a thrill.
  5. New Zealand Storm Petrel

    New Zealand Storm Petrel

    On a pelagic in Hauraki Gulf we were lucky enough to get looks at the New Zealand Storm Petrel. With a lot of panning I finally got a shot that showed its markings fairly well. Much faster in flight then White faced petrels or so it seemed as I panned on it.

    Don't get many of these in the Midlands...Storm Petrel that is, so definately a first for me. Not the best shot of one you will ever see i guess, but didn't realise they were like the 'Swifts of the Sea'...small & move like lightning!! Mike
