Singapore Strait 17May14Attendees: Con, Danny, JS, KH, Colin, Robert Tizard, Frank Rheindt, John Ascher and ???
Today is a strange pelagic day. First, I forgot to set my alarm, hence missing the boat initially. Then there were some irregularities in the paperwork due to changes in immigration rules and I managed to get on the boat about 1/2 hour before the boat could sail.
We saw our first Water Monitor out at sea, followed by hundreds of Bridled Terns, a few Black-naped Terns, two Little Terns, a Common Tern and several Swinhoe's Storm-petrels.
However, the best birds of the day were three Short-tailed Shearwaters. Photos from Jia Sheng.
