Joe Bluemel and Pete Holden of Island Conservation Society have reported that the Tropical Shearwater pair at Desroches is back at the same burrow where they were found in October 2015 and May 2016. The burrow has been dug back further from the damaged part and is very inconspicuous. On the 27th July the burrow contained a chick. Weekly monitoring is on-going. Also, Tropical Shearwater calls have been heard around the Wedge-tailed Shearwater colony. Further playback will be used in August to try to identify any additional nests.
