    Hi! I am Madeeha Shams. Me and my husband Robert Raines would like to join the may 19, 2017 pelagic trip. We are in Pakistan and can only come for a trip in May. If there are enough interested people, is there a chance that an extra trip could be arranged his month?
    I have only been to two pelagic trips - one off the coast of New Jersey on a stormy day and one whale watching trip off coast of maine. The only birds we saw were Wilson's storm petrels.
    I would be very happy if I can join a trip on the arabean sea.
    Cheers!

    Today's pelagic was another of those "curate's egg" trips. On a choppy sea, there was barely a single bird on the buttock-numbing first 40km, the numbness of both backsides and minds only alleviated by a large pod of dolphins relatively close inshore. It took until the 55km mark for things to warm up, with up to 12 Wilson's Storm Petrels eventually logged. However, at 65km we hit the jackpot with a 2-minute high speed encounter with a Swinhoe's Storm Petrel that easily dwarfed a nearby Wilson's and gave a good comparison of their differing flight actions. As with most of our Swinhoe's experiences, it ended all too abruptly as its fast jinking was too much even for the skills of Abdulla and his triple-engined boat to match. Final totals:

    1 Swinhoe's Storm Petrel
    12 Wilson's Storm Petrel
    8 Persian Shearwater
    100 Bridled Tern
    10 Common Tern
