5th August 2005 - Night Expedition

Alex Bevan, Hugh Harrop, Julian Hunt and Phillip Bristow (Wales) and Catarina Fagundes (Madeira Wind Birds)

After three days of strong wind we finally got a very calm night, with no cold at all. Though it was very dark, we saw some Zino's Petrels flying around their colony and one flew so close that we could not only hear the flap of the wings as we could see it perfectly. Several calls were heard.
