New scheduled pelagic - 8th June

After the canceled trips of April and May, on Saturday 8th June a new pelagic will be carried out from O Grove harbour, hoping to be the first pelagic of the year, the so-called "shearwater pelagic". If the sea condition and weather is good, we will have the chance of observing Balearic shearwater (Puffinus mauretanicus), Cory's shearwater (Calonectris diomedea), British storm-petrel (Hydrobates pelagicus) and hopefully some great skuas (Stercorarius skua) and Wilson's storm-petrel (Oceanites oceanicus). 

Departure from O Grove harbour will be at 8:00 h a.m. and return is scheduled at 15:30 h. Price of the pelagic will be 65 €/per person (55 € for the members of the Grupo Naturalista Hábitat), and it includes a light lunche on board. There is not recharge for the "chum" or bait for the seabirds.
