We joined the Lobosonda Team Dolphin and Whalewatching and were surprised
when we saw these Northern Gannets which we had never seen before in Madeira´s Waters.
“Today, beside the Common Dolphins, we saw three adults of Northern Gannets (Morus bassanus) resting on the sea surface. The birds were floating on the water apparently resting, an unusual observation. Normally we see individuals alone and sometimes in feeding situation together with other species of seabirds like Corey’s Shearwaters (Calonectris diomedea borealis).
