Teesha Baboorun has reported a Garganey present at the weltalnd of La Passe, Silhouette. Garganey are annual visitors to Seychelles in small numbers. The number of sightings has declined in recent years, almost certainly due to the drastic loss in habitat.
The La Passe wetland is one of the last remaining wetlands of the granitic islands. Several species of duck have been seen here including the only Seychelles records of no less than three species: Eurasian Wigeon, Common Teal and Mallard.
