Shear Delight ( Great Shearwater)

I thought it would be quiet nice to put together all the Shearwaters we get around the island during the summer.
This Great Shearwater breeds on Nightingale IslandInaccessible IslandTristan da Cunha, and Gough Island. It is one of only a few bird species to migrate from breeding grounds in the Southern Hemisphere to the Northern Hemisphere, the normal pattern being the other way round.
