Wrecked Leach’s Petrel’s – A Request

I am interested in receiving any wrecked Leach’s storm-petrels found locally due to the recent storms. I am a PhD research student at the University of Plymouth (Supervised by Dr Steve Votier) studying various aspects of Leach’s storm-petrels biology and dispersal in the North Atlantic and am interested in collecting dead specimens for analysis. I know there have been a number of local sightings recently, and I have already been sent one dead bird from a colleagues garden in St Dominick, so thought your website would be a great place to let local birders know of my interest.

Kind regards

Tony Bicknell
