Black-bellied storm Petrel – first for the Western Palarctic

Last night Madeira Wind Birds (Hugo and Catarina www.madeirawindbirds.com) sent a photo to the Scillypelagics team, taken off the back of a camera with a phone, during a pelagic off Madeira. Assuming it is a true representation, and there is no reason to believe otherwise, then it is a Black-bellied Storm-petrel and a first for the Western Palearctic. For further details see HERE.
