opmerkingen 7 November, Westkapelle, Veere, Zeeland (S J Lilipaly, M Hoekstein, P A Wolf et al; Hoekstein et al 2002). This is the species' first record from land anywhere in the North Sea (cf Kitching 2002). The bird was seen well at a distance of as close as 300-400 m for c 4 min by four observers; a Leach's Storm-petrel Oceanodroma leucorhoa was seen one hour later, allowing comparison of plumage and flight style (Hoekstein et al 2003). Together with 'soft-plumaged petrel' Pterodroma feae/madeira/mollis and White-throated Needletail Hirundapus caudacutus this is presently the only species on the Dutch list not documented by photographs or museum specimens [Annual Report 2003]. Flood & Thomas (2007) published a detailed paper about the identification of 'black-and white' storm petrels of the North Atlantic. Using their information, the only record of Wilson's Storm Petrel, past Westkapelle, Zeeland, on 7 November 2002 (Hoekstein et al 2002, van der Vliet et al 2004) was reconsidered. The conclusion of the re-evaluation was that it remains acceptable [Annual Report 2009].
