Friday Treat

It is mad friday but i have this little cracker up my sleeve as a treat for you all to enjoy. Ian Dickey photographed it recently and tells me its a Sooty Shearwater but i am not so sure. I am fairly certain its a White Billed Diver or a Ferruginous Duck and we are going to send it to our experts in Alaska for confirmation. Whatever it is its a fantastic photograph and many thanks to Ian for sending us it.
Our Alaska experts have confirmed its the first Western Palaerctic record of Flying Penquin. Nice one Ian!
