Hutton's Shearwater
(though would be nice to see a view of the underwing to really clinch the ID! - oh for video clips, they would be so much easier)

I'll go for Hutton's shearwater based on the dark collar, but it's a tough photo....

Hutton's Shearwater. Darker and more substantial collar than Fluttering. No white tab, near rump, as might appear on Fluttering and the bill is noticeably longer than for Fluttering. The bill does appear yellowish, which it shouldn't be, but I assume this is a result of the early morning or late afternoon warm light.
Cheers, Tony Wilson.
