Fall of Palearctic migrants at Aldabra atoll

p 47

Aldabra atoll, Seychelles, is situated at the north end of the Mozambique Channel, c400 km north-west of Madagascar and 600 km east of southern Tanzania, the nearest point of the African mainland. Apart from its unique native landbird fauna and internationally important seabird populations, Palearctic migrants occur, probably annually (although records are incomplete), particularly in March, but are few in number.
