I've just recently been on a cruise down to the Canary Islands in the Atlantic. On the way back we passed via Madeira. I saw these fantastic birds just skimming the water following the ship. I believe they were Great Shearwater. Can anyone confirm? Sorry, the IQ is not brilliant. I only had my 100-400 with me and I was ten storeys up on the ship!!

Thanks Rick. It was fascinating to watch these guys just skimming the waves.

Not Great but Cory's (although the taxonomy is a little more complex than "just" Cory's ;D

Nice shots

Many thanks. It's interesting reading about the differences between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Cory's Shearwater. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction! I've edited the original thread title to say Cory's rather than Great.
