Sun 28Leach's Storm-petrel
Offshore--Southport pelagic, Queensland
One more special bird to add to an already excellent trip list! Those of us who got on it noticed its long pointed wings and distinct flight style - quite different from the Wilson's. Also the long upperwing covert bar that reaches the leading edge, the lack of foot projection, the long narrow V shape divided white rump. In the photo can also see the long narrow bill and forked tail. Wing shape - arms are shorter and hands are long and pointed. Angle of wings in flight - arms pushed forward and hands angled back at the carpal joints. Further information

It's ID is obviously subject to BARC acceptance - all the photos leave little doubt]. Further information
