|Monteiros Storm Petrel|
The second day on the sea was completly different. A strong northern breeze made the trip less confortable and a new explores bank more south of the Island only brought us a lost Blue Shark. The afternoon back to the east side and still near the shore we found the 3th Brown Booby for the Azores (got the second by myself some years ago on my local patch) having trouble whit two Artic Skuas.
On the bank there was not much to do less a big number of Sooty Shearwaters flying by.
Slowly drifting back to Graciosa we had some Monteiros and Band rumped Storm Petrels but my best moment where the 3 Long Tailed Skuas apearing from nowhere.
