BIRD ISLAND, SEYCHELLES

Situated in the Indian Ocean a little south of the equator, some 1500km or so off the East African coast, Bird is the northernmost island

of the Seychelles archipelago. It's a privately-owned, sand-covered, almost flat coral island, measuring just 1700m long by no more

than 700m wide - a very small speck of land in a very big sea. As its name implies, the island is famous for its birds.  Whilst many of

the species are featured in this 'collections' album, I didn't want to try covering all of them. However, I do have an accompanying fully detailed 'species list' for this destination that includes a few thumbnail images of some of the birds that I decided to exclude.

 

 

The following thumbnails expand when clicked. You can then scroll through the images in either the 'standard view', or an alternative 'compact view' (via the info button) if you wish to see where the photo was taken and read about the encounter and/or the species.

Whilst my albums are optimised for viewing on a desktop monitor or larger laptop, there is an optional 'full screen' mode for tablets or notebooks. But, please note that if you do use this mode on a smaller device, the top and/or bottom of some photos may

be clipped, and if you leave your curser over the image the navigation overlay backgrounds may be visible.
