Puffinus yelkouan

Although Bird Guides clarify that Yelkouan Shearwater (Μύχος) does not follow ships, i had several times the experience to watch both seabirds Yelkouan and Cory’s Shearwater flying in parallel from boats crossing Aegean Sea.

Some times more than one individuals were following the ship.

That day’s mirror sea conditions gave this grotesque result in Yelkouan Shearwater ‘s reflection.
