Observation details

well seen, photos by several. Bird flew by the starboard side of the ship and was only seen by a few people that were at the back of the bridge (it was windy and many of us were standing behind the bridge to avoid the wind). Several who saw the bird were convinced it was Magenta Petrel but there were others who thought it was not. We called it out over the speaker and people started coming out. About 5 minutes later, the bird reappeared at the back of the ship and those that were out got very good views. Unfortunately, i was still at the back of the bridge and so was shooting photos from there. The few people shooting photos from the back of the ship likely got better photos.
