It feels like a lifetime ago since I added anything to this blog and I have almost forgotten how to update the pages. Late last year I made a trip to The Cape Verdes Island in November. These Cape Verdes Shearwaters I got off a deep sea fishing trip for 7 hours one day during my stay on Boa Vista Island. During the trip the only seabirds or birds seen at sea were 8 Cape Verde Shearwaters, two Boyd's Shearwaters, a couple of Brown Boobies and two Cattle Egrets. Very strange not to see any auks, terns gulls or other seabirds.
