Susan Gie has reported a Seychelles Kestrel next to the school at La Passe, La Digue on 12 July 2017. Seychelles Kestrel is endemic to the granitic islands and resident on Mahé and 5 of its satellites, Praslin, Silhouette and North Island. Despite rumours of occasional sightings on La Digue, SBRC has authenticated only 2 previous reports, one in March and one in April 2015 (probably the same individual). It may be underreported, possibly due to observers being unaware that it does not normally occur on La Digue or possibly some reports relate to vagrant falcon species such as Amur Falcon, an annual visitor to Seychelles.
A brown morph Red-footed Booby has been reported from Farquhar, first seen by Aurelie Duhec and Richard jeanne, photographed by Adrian Skerrett on 19 July. Possibly a viitor from the Pacific, brown morph is not known to breed at any locality in the western Indian Ocean.
