Nature Quiz - British Birds - Petrels, Shearwaters and Terns (Questions)

Petrels are tube-nosed seabirds. Shearwaters are extraordinarily long-lived. A bird breeding in Northern Ireland was ringed as an adult (at least 5 years old) in 1953. It was retrapped in 2003, at least 55 years old, the oldest known wild bird in the world. Apart from bathing, terns rarely swim, despite having webbed feet.
