Help on identification wanted please!

A friend of mine took this in Gran Canaria in November. Methinks a Cory's Shearwater possibly but I would appreciate a comment from somebody who actually knows what they're talking about. About the size of a Herring Gull apparently.

Agree with Clive. Defo a Cory's and commonly seen off the Islas Canarias
