Wilson’s storm petrel

Wilson’s storm petrel, also called them Oceanites in french. They go in the Arctic in July/August for food and come to Antarctica in December/January to breed. A migration of over 40 000 km, like the arctic tern.

This electric potential is expected to be very weak, making it difficult to measure – and one reason Earth can support life More informations here:
