This species is commonly known by its previous name of Little Shearwater and by some as North Atlantic Little Shearwater while the Clements update in December 2009 has split this population so it is also known now as Baroli's Shearwater. Despite the name changes it remains a very rare visitor to the UK, typically seen from headlands in the South West from July to September.
