    I believe - if I remember correctly - it was a skua(?) of some sort? Look I was going 'Whale!' at the time... :O)

    I think there was a mention of Petrels at some point? Or could be a Shearwater?

    I have a suspicion that I'd be saying "Petrel! What species?" - mind you, perhaps the whale might of grabbed my attention!
