Fulmar Fulmarus glacialis. A bird was seen flying W from Estaca de Bares, A Coruña, Galicia, on 5.9 (Antonio Sandoval).
 
Little Shearwater* Puffinus assimilis Two records (1)On the Pride of Bilbao ferry from Santurtzi to Portsmouth, a bird was seen at c.120 miles from Bilbao on 8.9 under severe gale conditions, a fact that caused that only two lucky observers (e.g. from 58 Spanish birders) could see this bird (Gorka Ocio, Alfonso Rodrigo). Later on the trip, another was seen near Brest, in French waters (Ferran López)(2) On 5.9 one was seen flying W from Estaca de Bares, A Coruña, Galicia (Antonio Sandoval).
MASKED BOOBY* Sula dactylatra THIRD FOR SPAIN AND THE WP. One record (1) A sub-dult Masked Booby was seen from the Portsmouth-Bilbao ferry on 3.9 and 4.9.  Apparently the bird followed the boat from around 5.15pm on 3.9 (off France) and stayed with it all night only leaving the boat as it arrived in Bilbao harbour at 06.30am this morning.  This is a phenomenal record and presumably will be backed up with some good photos as the bird stayed with the boat for such a long time (Clive Martin, Hugh Harrop). There is an image of this bird in the Biscay Dolphin Organisation website here (opens in another window)Read more in Spanish on this sighting in this URL from El Correo Digital newspaper (includes a photo) There is a new page in this web regarding with this record, plenty of photos and details on the sighting
