Zino's Petrels are back to Madeira!!!

Since the 6th of April 2011 we were sure that Zino's Petrels Pterodroma madeira were back to Madeira as we heard them near their breeding colony, but we wanted to be sure that they were also seen at sea and so kept looking for it...

Today, the 18th of April 2011, on a research pelagic trip to see Zino's Petrels at sea, in just a couple of hours we observed 3 Zino's Petrels flying close to us, 2 of them flying together! What a nice feeling we had seeing these amazing creatures flying freely and safe on their own habitat!!!
