Ringed shearwater

These images, taken on 24/12/2017, show a Yelkouan Shearwater near its nesting cavity in the Grotta dei Contrabbandieri. This individual is an old friend: the leg ring that can be seen in some of the frames of the video identifies this bird as one that was ringed several years ago by ISPRA researchers. Yelkouan Shearwaters are highly faithful to their nesting sites, where they return year after year.
