We were quite lucky to see this small and very special bird (Acrocephalus sechellensis). Some years ago, only 50 of them existed in all the World, and all of them in the tiny Cousin Island. It was for them that the nature reserve of Cousin was established, and it has worked: more than 2500 warblers now live there and in other islets, all in the Seychelles.

Cousin Island has only 400 m. in diameter, but it's a very important nature reserve. There live some very endangered birds, and also about 300.000 terns!
