NZ Storm Petrel - Inner Hauraki Gulf

Postby cthrnjayne » Fri Mar 06, 2020 2:46 pm

Hi everyone,

I thought you may be interested to see this sighting of a NZ Storm Petrel (confirmed by several experienced birders) that we had in the inner Hauraki Gulf mid February. We saw it in the middle ground, west from Fantail Bay and have been told that it is possibly the innermost record of this species?!
