Our blogspot today is mainly to report new sightings of birds.
It is a Masked Booby. Confirmed by John and Frieda. It appeared actually the 23 of October at 10:10, we thought nobody had captured it by camera, but luckily the guys on the bridge had the camera ready.
This is a Brown Booby. Spotted yesterday 25th of October at 17:15, and it stayed with us for an hour or so.
The wagtail "John bird-bird" has not been seen for a couple of days now. Seems he has left us.
The sunsets on the big blue Ocean are quite nice. This was Monday night 24th of October.
