L'illa dels ocells / Terns everywhere!

L'illa de Cousin, a les Seychelles, només fa uns 400 metres de diametre, però està habitada per uns 300.000 ocells! La GRAN majoria son esternids com ara aquest Lesser Noddy (Anous tenuirostris), dels qüals en varem veure milers. N'hi ha arreu, en cada arbre de l'illa podeu contar 30 o 40 nius!
