Birding Site Guide

This small island lies 3km off the W coast and can be reached by boat from Anakao, which is 16km S of St. Augustine’s. The island is not only good for birding but provides excellent snorkelling on the reefs. Coastal birds include Red-tailed Tropicbird, Lesser Crested and Saunder’s Tern. Crab Plover and other waders such as Bar-tailed Godwit can sometimes be found. Anakou is a site for Littoral Rock Thrush.

An excellent report and tour operator to try is Rockjumper Tours
