Hi all,

Very much looking forward to this much-postponed trip and looking for keen birders to join. I'll be covering Santiago first, for all land endemics, coastal species and sea-watching, before moving to Sao Nicolau for the Raso/Branco section as well as land-based seawatches. I will use a reputable guide, Toi, for the Branco trip. I will not visit Boa Vista/Passaros for white-faced petrels given that the frigatebirds are now extinct. Looking for keen birders to join the trip and share the fun. Tend to be fairly targeted and we'll be using the very latest information to ensure we get the buzzard as well as all of the seabirds, I hope.

Once in touch we can talk logistics further, open to working with other birders on this to make sure everyone on the trip is happy with planning and costs.
