2nd July 2005 - Night Expedition

Niels Bemrendt (Denmark), Hugo Romano, Tânia Pestana and Catarina Fagundes (Madeira Wind Birds)

The night at Pico do Areeiro was clear as we were above the clouds but it was windy. The sky was full of stars and, until 10,30 pm we were able to see the sunset light, that is why we only started to hear the Zino's Petrels after that. The first call seemed quite distant but the next became closer and closer until a moment that we heard a call just above us. At least 3 silhoutes were seen.
