Few people realise that there is a whole new world of strange and wonderful birds just a few miles off shore of Namibias beaches.
Apart from ornithologists and dedicated birders, few people are familiar with the fascinating world of pelagic birds. Pelagic birds are seabirds that spend most of their time on the ocean away from land. They only visit land to nest. Birders and scientists often know much less about the pelagic birds in their region than other species, meaning there are still lots of exciting things to discover. Examples of pelagic birds in the Walvis Bay area include several species of Albatrosses, Petrels, Skuas, Prions, Fulmars and Gulls.
