SWINHOE’S STORM-PETREL June 9, 2017!!  Read about the trip HERE!!

The 2017 Blitz was a success in spite of three days on land!  We ended up with 12 species of tubenose, including Trindade & Fea’s Petrel plus European Storm-Petrel!  We also had Red-billed Tropicbird, Brown Booby, Brown Noddy, and Bridled Tern.  Plus all three jaegers and a South Polar Skua!  Not to mention the NINE species of cetacean…it was an amazing Blitz!  The spring 2017 lists are here: Spring 2017 Totals
