Mousa Storm Petrel Recordings

A few 'fresh' recordings from one of our many visits to Mousa during the summer of 2010. What an amazing sound they make!

Storm Petrel Recording #1








Storm Petrel Recording #2








Those with sharp ears may pick out the singing Skylark in the background - the recording was made just after 0200hrs, which is pretty much sunrise here in Shetland in mid June!

I had only known Storm Petrel from novels like "Masterman Ready".There call is peculiar, isn't it?

Really cool stuff Hugh. I've seen them once here in Iceland, when I went to Westmann Islands.. Since then I',ve not been able to see them again but they are beautiful. Your pictures are superb!
