Nic to see lots of pix of the two challenging petrels - and the first Chaffinch shot is terrific.

Cheers

Great range of photos Paul.

I have sometimes wondered about doing such pelagics on Madeira, I presume you take some form of sea sickness tablets, especially as it looks as if there are no loos on-board.

According to various sources there is a loo mainly for women, men finding it easier to use a bucket ! No sign of a loo on the photos of the boat though.

If you need to be sick I guess it just goes over the side and adds to the chum.

Nick - many thanks. Yes sea sickness tablets and waterproofs in order.

Nick/Steve - there was a bucket available. (Chemical loo is only put on board if any of the booked passengers are female.)

Alan - cheers.
