By the time Voyager got alongside at Limon, Costa Rica we had already clocked up Brown Booby, Magnificent Frigatebird, Royal Tern, Great, Cattle and Snowy Egret, Great Blue Heron, Black Vulture plus Laughing Gull so a decent foundation for another days intense ‘birding’! So successful was the day that it has been split into 3 sections, which will serve to fill 2 more days at sea when no more than a dozen Brown Boobies entered the log.
A very flighty Butterfly that we were willing to land, but hadn't accounted for it landing in the river. Unfortunately, the flow was too fast to make a rescue.
