Ringing Storm Petrels at sea.

On Friday night / Saturday morning we set about to catch and ring Storm petrels from the boat at sea . The lads that came over to do the ringing managed to ring 20 Storm Petrels by playing their call over a loud speaker they also tried Wilsons petrel which was one of the target birds as they have never been caught or ringed in british waters but no luck this time.


  1. Stunning little bird,better luck next time for the Wilsons.

  2. fascinating stuff.seems a very delicate operation to ring them.
