A day out on cousin

  1. 1. A day out on Cousin Island Special Reserve<br />
  2. 2. Cousin Island wardens push the Reserve boat into the water. No other boats are allowed to land on Cousin. The wardens land and return visitors to their vessels <br />
  3. 3. As one of the wardens fetches the visitors, the others wait to help with landing and disembarking<br />
  4. 4. And here they come…<br />
  5. 5. Olivier (second left) is leading this tour. <br />
  6. 6. Its nesting season for Lesser noddies. One is nesting right above on a tree as Olivier talks about the Island and its biodiversity<br />
  7. 7. There has also been a heavy fruiting event of the BwaMapou(Pisoniagrandis) on the island in recent weeks. The gummy resin of its fruits immobilises many noddies. The birds have to be freed in order to fly<br />
  8. 8. Pisonia free!<br />
  9. 9. White-tailed tropicbirds can be found nesting at the bases of trees during a tour<br />
  10. 10. Here is a Seychelles Magpie Robin (left) and a Giant Tortoise<br />
  11. 11. The Seychelles Magpie Robin is one of the rarest birds in the world. There are 36 in Cousin and about 200 in the Seychelles. <br />
  12. 12. And a nesting Bridled Tern<br />
  13. 13. Nice view from the top of Cousin hill. Seabirds flying above<br />
