A quick drive to wales and in an hour saw these two gorgeous birds
Ravens are quite common down there.

Hi guys,

I was on a deepwater Pelagic last Friday, and it's just too difficult to choose just one BOTD, so here's my 3 favorites.
1. Jouanin's Petrel
2. Jouanin's Petrel
3. Persian Shearwater
4. Bridled Tern

Hope you like the images.

Cheers

Question

Yep, cracking pics.

There has to be an upside to living in Dubai I suppose , but I'm curious about what waters your pelagic explored?

Hi Tony,

Our Pelagic' s set off from Khor Kalba and venture out into the Gulf of Oman, we were out 75klm on this trip as the sea was flat calm, at some points you couldn't tell where the sea stopped and the sky began!
Here's a link to the hotspot on eBird with all our finding's on this trip, if you click the map at the top right you'll see the destination. Cheers, and glad you enjoyed the images.
