AUSTRALIAN GANNET SIGHTING ON SOUTH AFRICA’S WEST COAST

Patrick recently spent two nights on guano-filled Malgas Island off Saldanha on the West Coast of South Africa to see an Australian Gannet  – a rare bird of note on the Southern African coast.

Note the white outer tail feathers, relatively dark eye and
white outer tail feathers. The call was also quite distinctive and very
different to the ‘gewone ou Kaapse Malgas’ (the common Cape Gannet).
