Prion, today, North of the Falkland Islands (1 Viewer)

This prion caught my attention at sea because it didn't seem to have strong face pattern. The amount of black on tail looks decent. I'm thinking Fairy prion but I don't have experience with this species. Apology for photo quality. Photos were taken today on the way to Falklands.

Can't remember if I've seen this or not, but certainly ticks boxes for fairy. Long black tail tip, plain face, bill so thin as to be invisible in these pics
