Sooty shearwater, Lyme Bay boat trip

See attached photos of a dark shearwater which approached close to the boat this on this morning's boat trip out of Brixham. On the trip this was called as dark Balearic shearwater. From inspection of the photos it is clear that this is in fact a very worn Sooty Shearwater.
