Another one of our seasonal visitors - The Sooty Tern (Onychoprion fuscatus). These birds were once abundant on many islands throughout the Seychelles however due to over-harvesting of their eggs (a local delicacy) in many places numbers have dwindled. Cousine Island offers a safe refuge for these birds to breed. In this photo Conservation Manager Becky releases a bird after it has been given a metal ID ring – If you look closely you will see it on the birds right leg.
