Red-billed Tropicbird and friends

off Lanzarote

by Martin

I am away this week with friends. This is where I will be ūüôā

Reporting when we get back. 2 days and 2 night at sea. Not been done before. A frontier birding experience all round!

Some old posts with past highlights: here  and here .

The pioneering pelagics will be¬†continuing¬†off¬†Lanzarote. I’ll be joining the guys Dani and Juan for a ‘Birding Frontiers’ special 2 day gig over¬†27th-28th of August.

Dani writes: “For the first time the plan is to take ¬†2 sailing boats out to the Banco. and we will be staying overnight! That will be very exciting, as we will be able to chum in the late evening and early morning in the best areas, when¬†there’s¬†much more bird activity. I am really excited with it!¬†We could probably give a couple of short lectures with photos, etc…the day before, and maybe some birding in the island the day after.”

For now I’m wowed by Juan’s photos of Red-billed Tropicbird around the harbour from which we sail… Guess I am hoping they are ‘gettable’ in August.
