Storm Petrel 17 Oct 2017 Holland Haven Matt Turner 1 Hesitated to add as I've never seen before but don't know what else it could have been. Small black bird, white rump flying south very low over the sea but very close to shore. Flight was direct and straight with rapid wing beats and very short glides, quite broad wings and no obvious markings other than rump. Viewed from above so couldn't see underwing.
