And then, after 34 days, most of then at open ocean, we reached our final destination! Over a month ago we started in Ushuaia and in that time we covered over 6500 nautical miles and visited South Georgia, Gough, Tristan da Cunha, St Helena and Ascension Island. And now we landed on the Cape Verde Islands.
As this was the end of our trip, we didn’t have any guests around anymore. I had decided to stay for a few days, with some colleagues, to do some birding. On our first day, we searched for most endemics of the island. This Cape Verde Warbler wasn’t easy to find, but we managed to see it in the botanical gardens.
Not an endemic, but very nice to see was the Grey-headed Kingfisher. Beautiful coloured and relatively common on the island. Always a pleasant sight.
