The European Storm-petrel or Storm Petrel (Hydrobates pelagicus) is a small bird of the storm-petrel family, Hydrobatidae, part of the seabird order Procellariiformes. It is the only member of the genus Hydrobates.

It breeds on inaccessible islands in the north Atlantic and western Mediterranean, with the core population in western Ireland, northwest Scotland and the Faroe Islands, where the worldwide biggest colony breeds on the island of N??lsoy. It nests in colonies close to the sea in burrows or rock crevices. It lays a single white egg.

Hydrobates pelagicus

They are the smallest European seabirds, being scarcely bigger than a House Martin and having a similar plumage with dark upperparts and a conspicuous white rump. However, these petrels have a weak fluttery, rather bat-like flight, usually low over the sea and their underparts are completely dark except for a white line across the underwing. The more rounded stubby wings and short, square-ended tail help to separate them from Leach's Petrels.
