LAST DAY ON THE AZORES
Spent today on Sao Miguel- 2 Ring-necked Ducks, 1 Pied-billed Grebe and 1 Teal on Furnas, with one Azores Bullfinch at the regular site and we also popped in on the Wood Duck. Highlight of the day was the cozido das furnas- a beautiful steamed dish which is cooked in the nearby thermal rocks.
Heard that a Parula had been found on Corvo and there is also a rumour of a grackle on the island. To keep up with Corvo 2009 check out Olof's excellent blog: www.corvo2009blogspot.com
Back home tomorrow and back to the London premier urban nature reserve project at Beddington, building the Beddington Observatory, late autumn migration and planning the next expedition.
