American Black Tern

The weather is awful here on Sao Miguel- the main Azorean island. I managed to have a look around Lagoa Azul and pyllo wood for a couple of hours this morning but saw nothing apart from fog, rain and four Eurasian Wigeon. I gave up in the end and came back to Ponta Delgada and an American Black Tern was flying along the sea front while I was looking for a restaurant.
This weather is bad- strong winds and fog. I heard David Lindo and Stuart Winter are stuck on Flores for the forth day and I am not sure if Pierre-Andre and Simon made it to Corvo- last I heard they were stuck on Faial.
Looks like this weather is scattering and dumping birders as well as birds.

Pierre must be on Corvo, Netfugl are quoting his Facebook page today re DC Cormorant. Good luck fella.

I just heard from them now. They made it over on Saturday. The plane went to Corvo but not Flores so hope for tomorrow.
Cheers Darryl. Wish you were here, really!
