A tiny bobbing shape in the sunrise – a butterfly on the wind, its flight completely dominated by the surface eddies. Perhaps it was trying to land on Berri but it was swept over the boom and away into the wild Atlantic. We are abeam Valverde and it came from the north east so must have come from Santa Cruz De La Palma, Vallhermoso or even Tenerife. In a flash of sunlight on a wing it was brownish red – rather as I remember Red Admirals. Appropriate in its way. Good luck, little one!
