19 September, 1769

 

On 19 September, 1769, James Cook wrote “Variable Light airs and calm... A large hollow swell from the southward”.

Joseph Banks wrote “Quite calm today go out in the boat and shoot Procellaria velox (the dove of the 31st), vagabunda (the grey backd shearwater of the same day), Passerina (the small mother Careys chicken of the 10th)... A large hollow swell from the South”.

Probably a Gadfly Petrel, White-headed Petrel and a Storm Petrel.
