Dry landing on North Seymour Island. Here we encountered countless frigate birds, blue footed boobies and pelicans as they flew around the cliffs and dived into the sea after the fish. This was before we left the boat. Once on the island there were birds everywhere we looked, seemingly oblivious to our presence. Some male frigate birds were proudly displaying their inflated red pouches in an attempt to attract a mate. Others were flying overhead and the male blue footed boobies were engaging in their amusing courtship rituals whilst the females were playing hard to get! We also saw land iguanas, lizards and baby sea lions playing with the sally lightfoot crabs. Highly entertaining and delightful walk!
