Physeter macrocephalus

Bilder sagen mehr als Worte, auch heute wollten die Gäste teils keine Infos mehr zu den Pottwalen, sondern sie wollten erst einmal alles verarbeiten. Das Video von der Stenella aus ist nicht so gut geworden, aber den grossen Abszess des Pottwalbabys kann man gut auf den Fotos erkennen 🙁 Armes Kleines… Mehrmals liessen die Pottwalmütter ihre Jungen an der Oberfläche bei uns und tauchten in die Tiefe: ein grosser Vertrauensbeweis 🙂 Noch zu erwähnen sind die beiden tollen Vogelsichtungen: Madeira Wellenläufer und der Kapverden Sturmvogel

Pictures say more than words, even our guests couldn’t take in more information, they first had do “digest” all the fabulous impressions this trip brought them! In the picture you can see a baby sperm whale with a big abcess, poor little guy, but there is nothing we can do about it, just let nature take his course. A few times the Sperm whale mothers left their calfs on the surface while they dived into the depths, a big vote of confidence for us! 😉 And we had two nice sightings of birds: Madeiran Storm-petrel and Fea’s Petrel.

Uma imagem vale mais que mil palavras e os nossos clientes após os avistamentos de hoje precisaram de algum tempo para assimilar toda a informação visual recolhida! Na foto vemos um cachalote bebé com um enorme abcesso, coitadinho 🙁 Mas não há nada a fazer a não ser deixar a Natureza tomar seu rumo. Foram várias as vezes que as mães deixaram as suas crias a superfície e mergulharam nas profundezas, um grande voto de confiança este! Ainda avistamos dois tipos de aves: Roque de castro e Freira do Búzio.
