18th June, 2007. Estremoz (Portugal)

Atlantic Cory's Shearwater is one of a subspecies of Cory's Shearwater, a large shearwater in brown colour. Mostly lives in Mediterranean Sea and migrate to Atlantic Ocean, offshore of Europe to Cape Verde Islands in each Springs, but it different than Cape Verde Shearwater (佛得角猛鸌), which is endemic to the country. Now these two species listed as Near Threatened.

The mail sent by me during visiting Portugal, Estremoz is a relax place with attractive castle. The woman in the post office very kindly to help me affix the extra stamps, although one of them is damaged.
