LONG-BILLED MURRELET Brachyramphus perdix


One of the harder auks to see, especially as it is confined to coastal Eastern Russia. Originally lumped with Marbled Murrelet, which occurs on the American side of the Pacific, some world listers were extremely pleased to see this unlikely vagrant to Southern England, as was I, having only seen them distantly and too far away to photograph.
