Sunday 22 August
I may be back in the UK at the moment but, nevertheless, it was great to receive an emailed report from my friend Dave Elliott-Binns about his Atlantic pelagic trip last Saturday, this time using the port at Chipiona in Cadiz province, along with friends Derek Etherton and Ricky Owen under the leadership of Javi Elloriaga of Birding the Strait. Given the recent winds it was wonderful that the trip actually managed to take place.
