A Leach's Storm-Petrel (Oceanodroma leucorhoa) initially banded on Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain in October 1995 was recaptured on Bon Portage Island off the south tip of Nova Scotia, Canada in August 2009, 13 years and 10 months later, and some 4,660 km and 51° longitude away. Recoveries on breeding areas of seabirds that were originally banded on wintering areas are exceedingly rare. This record appears to constitute the first winter-summer recapture of a Leach's Storm-Petrel.
