Wonderful pictures - thanks for sharing them with us.  And I'm glad someone got the bird for you - I'd thought something of the heron/egret family, but couldn't get beyond that.

My maritime French is even more lacking than my more workaday French - but the pictures are great, and a few new words did make some sense.  And I definitely covet the 'pop up Hermione' advertised alongside the story!

"Anybody know what kind of bird that is in the last picture? Never seen one of those before."

Easy one Bob,

Its the child of the one near the mast top in the previous pic.   ;D

Nice pics.
