Fairy Prion

Fairy Prion - Pachyptila turtur


Port Fairy Pelagic:  2013:  April.


Apparently the smallest prion, and is the one seen on pelagic trips off south-eastern Australia.

They are larger than Storm-petrels but smaller than most other pelagic species.   They have a distinctive marking on their wings like an M.

They are really at home at sea!
