New seabird data on the Seawatching in Senegal web site
The Seawatching in Senegal website, which provides much more detail that our site on seabirds off Dakar, has new data from a trip by French ornithologists on 25-31 October 2010. October remains the month of preference for catching the migration spectacle. The tabulated data shows, in comparison with other years, big numbers of Wilsons storm-petrel and skuas, especially “great skua” types and south polar skua.
Thanks to the site’s owner and manager, Niklas Holmstrom, for providing a link to our site.

The defunct, twin volcanoes of Mamelles, in Dakar’s Ouakam arrondissement, with Cape Verde Shearwaters and Bottle-nosed Dolphins. The rocky coast of Dakar, forming the Cap Vert Important Bird Area, is an outstanding site for seabirds (photo: P. Robinson). Technopole and its numerous waders, herons, gulls, terns and other waterbirds (including Greater Flamingos when conditions are right) is one of the best sites for birds in the greater Dakar region (photos: B.
