Cory's Shearwater

This species breeds on islands and cliffs in the Mediterranean, with the odd outpost on the Atlantic coast of Iberia.  In late summer and autumn, most birds migrate into the Atlantic as far north as the south-western coasts of Great Britain and Ireland. They return to the Mediterranean in February. The biggest colony is located in Savage IslandsMadeira.
