On Saturday November 5th, there was a big storm in the Atlantic Ocean near Salé coasts that has generated big waves. Several pelagic bird species have approached the shore of Sidi Moussa and I could see the following species:
40 Puffinus mauretanicus (Puffin des Baléares – Balearic Shearwater).
5 Hydrobates pelagicus (Océanite tempête – European Storm Petrel).
1 Oceanodroma leucorhoa (Océanite culblanc – Leach’s Storm-petrel).
6 Stercorarius parasiticus (Labbe parasite – Arctic Skua).
2 Young Stercorarius longicaudus (Labbe à longue queue – Long-tailed Skua).
