Leach's Petrel.

I'm posting this image to stand alone in its own post as it is by far the best one I ever viewed of the Leach's Petrel and was taken by Chris Batty on 3 October at Knott End. The photograph can be seen on the Flyde Bird Club website here http://www.fyldebirdclub.org/ which can also be found via the link on the left-hand sidebar on Birds2blog.
Its worth noting this bird is in flight and not on the sea which in my view makes the photograph even more stunning.
Thanks for allowing me to post Chris.
