Little Shearwater

Little Shearwater (Puffinus assimilis)

little shearwater previewWingspan 630mm body weight of 220-260g

A very hard bird to photograph as he doesn't come close to boats often, so my shot of this guy aren't great. A small fast flying Shearwater, breeds on the outer islands and a few breed on the main island in small burrows. Can be seen here from April to November if your lucky!!
