Storm Petrels

 Last night I joined a session of luring and catching European Storm Petrels at Herdlevær. We watched and ringed twelve birds. Nice result!! All these beauties were second calendar year birds. These are identifiable because of the pointed (and not rounded) p2. 

After ringing and measuring the birds stay on the stone they are placed upon for a short minute, giving good photo opportunities.
