Possibly the commonest seabird in the world, and familiar to many British birders who are prepared to brave pelagic trips, this was also my "bogey-bird" when it came to taking photos. Breeding on most subantarctic islands, and also the Antarctic mainland, they disperse as far as 77 degrees north. Thus we saw them on many occasions, but they seemed to avoid the camera until recently when I took these shots off Madeira.
