Hi all,

Here are some photos from the 16th August Southport pelagic:

Of the 18 species we saw 12 were tubenoses. The first highlight of the
trip was a White-headed Petrel. The Light-mantled Albatross showed a
cream-coloured mantle (no scalloping), a narrow eye-crescent, a black bill
with an obvious blue sulcus, and fresh-looking remiges - likely a 3rd year
bird. The Gibson's Albatross was an older immature/subadult female. The
adult Masked Booby had a whitish iris and hence was a S. d. personata.
Other 'good' birds were a dark intermediate morph Kermadec Petrel and a
Black-bellied Storm-petrel.
Paul will post a full trip report soon on the SOSSA website:
