Pep Nogues has reported a series of sightings of Barn Swallow Hirundo rustica
Pep Nogués, Ari Fernández and Chris Narty have reported a Lesser Kestrel at Alphonse, apparently in association with large swarms of Wandering Glider Pantala flavescens and Spot-winged Glider P. hymenaea. This is the second time that the appearance of Lesser Kestrel has been noted as coinciding with the appearance of large numbers of migratory dragonflies. SBRC has accepted 9 previous records of Lesser Kestrel. All but two of these records are on Spring migration, which is very unusual timing for any vagrant in Seychelles.
In addition to a Lesser Kestrel the ICS Alphonse team, Chris Narty, Ari Fernández and Pep Nogués, have reported a series of other sightings. These are the third Northern Wheatear of the season, an adult male on 23 and 25 February, a Pacific Swift on 29 March and no less than 6 Barn Swallows three of which were at neighbouring St Francois from 28 March. to 4 April.
