Wow great thanks
I took lots of pics as there were many birds in a frenzy of feeding with YL gulls. Can’t remember the name for that kind of feeding frenzy
Is this a Sooty?
Many thanks

Anything other than Yelkouan (the medium sized ones you have photographed) and Cory’s Shearwater, (which is larger, with a greyish head & yellowish bill, amongst other things) would be extremely rare off the Croatian coast.

No, Yelkouan too I think, it's just because we can't see the pale underparts from this angle ;)
