I was eating breakfast when I casually did a routine check of emails. I nearly choked on my cereal when I opened one from Catherina Onezia with pictures of this bizarre but wonderful first record for Seychelles. I dashed down to Ile Perseverance but no luck. I tried again in the late afternoon and same story...no show. Then Catherina and Joel turned up. Still no luck and I headed off home. I had not reached the end of the road before Catty called on my mobile. "You friend is still here". Doing a quick about turn, back I went and sure enough, thanks to the sharp eyes of Catty I saw and photographed the bird.
