strange screaming noises

During the last 2 nights we have visitors who scare our helmsman with there strange screaming noises. They are Terns, called Noddies. They received this name because of there nodding and bowing behaviour during the courtship. Sitting on the rail right behind the steeringbox it looks that they keep an eye on our helmsman. Officially they should not go this far out at sea, but they seem to like the EUROPA and are now already more then 300 Nautical-Miles away from home, the tropical island Ascension. Even Sirius his barking doesn't scare them away.

Alles Wel
