Day 9: Seabirds

In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, 1000 miles away from the Canary Islands, 600 miles away from the Capeverdian Islands and 1500 miles away from Barbados (our next destination point), not many birds visit our sailing yacht Orinoco. We saw three species and, with our wildlife photographic equipment on board, could get a shot of one bird. It seems to be a sea swallow (Seeschwalbe). It was obviously attracted by our fishing lines, but, luckily, did not attack our lures (Köder).
