We saw large numbers of these birds around the ship particularly in areas with pack ice and icebergs. Taking advantage of the strong winds they would pass the ship at great speed.

The Antarctic Petrel is often gregarious and will form large flocks. They are often seen near the pack ice and icebergs. They have a wing span of abut 1m and weigh 675g. Performs distinctive stiff winged glides.
