NATURAL HISTORY TOUR 2015
We did our first AZORES NATURE Natural History Trip. Here's a few highlights:
Azores Chaffinch- one of several endemic local races of birds
Serra de Santa Barbara, Terceira.
The 2015 group
Rich Bonser led the annual pelagic to the Bank of Fortune on Graciosa. Rough seas meant it was a difficult year but the group still scored Swinhoe's Petrel, Sooty Tern and Monteiro's Petrel. MORE HERE
