A trip was organised to the west coast, to try to catch stormies. Earthwatch team 1 in 2005 had caught 4 birds there that were unusually lightweight. We wanted to try to confirm whether stormies really are lighter on the west coast. The trip was coordinated by Manuela Nunes of ICN, assisted by Carlos, Colin & Mark.
By all accounts it was an exciting night of dodging large waves and jumping across large boulders but unfortunately no stormies were seen or caught.

The following night, Manuela and Carlos joined us on the south coast, where we were much more successful.
