Corvo awaits

Still on Terceira waiting for the next plane to Corvo. This will be my third attempt at getting there in the last week so fingers crossed for tomorrow.
We went round the Terceira sites today to kill time. The quarry still held the White-winged Black Tern and pretty much the same waders and ducks as yesterday.
At Angra we found a Sandwich Tern and 3 Common Scoters, which we tried to string into Black Scoters but the bill shape and the taperng rear neck line point towards a European origin.
