Nov 21, 2015 Southport Pelagic Trip

06:00-16:10
Fine
Wave height : 1.5-2.0m
Wind condition : 8-10m (from the north-northeast)

I joined the pelagic trip by Mr. Paul Walbridge. I want to see Tahiti Petrel, because Tahiti Petrel which has mixed-karma of gadfly-petrels and shearwaters is a very attractive species for me. So, I joined this pelagic, because off Southport is famous place where Tahiti Petrel is seen in regularly. It is exciting that I could observe 16 Tahiti Petrels. In addition, I could observe many ‘dark morph’ Wedge-tailed Shearwaters. It is ‘pale morph’ mainly in Japan to be seen, and most of ‘dark morph’ is not seen.
