Bird Island | Seychelles
In all our visits over the years this was the first time we've seen this species on the island - one lone bird, who stayed just three days before moving on. After it was first spotted it took a bit of finding so, all in all, I was very pleased with this shot. Apart from my wife Tris and I, I think only one other guest managed to get a picture. There was some debate as to whether it was the much rarer Black-Winged variety, but after some research I'm pretty sure it's the Collared. However, if anyone knows better then please let me know.
