We saw some 19 species of petrel. Of these the most numerous particularly around South Georgia are the prions. They are, however, very difficult to tell apart, and here they are divided broadly into Antarctic Prions (with narrow black tail bands) and Fairy Prions (with broad black tail bands).
Blue Petrel seen and photographed, but I cannot find the photo amongst the 13,500 pictures which I took. I think it went behind a wave as I pressed the shutter!
