A few more Azores shots. There is a regular winter flock of Ring-billed Gulls on Terceira (up to 50+) which presumably migrate to and from the US on a routine basis.
Here are some more photos from Vincent and Simon from the Azores winter 2011: http://www.surfbirds.com/cgi-bin/gallery/display.cgi?gallery=gallery11
Bonser, Olof and co are out on the Azores at the moment so expecting a big discovery soon. Latest news and more from the Azores here:
That's more or less it for the Azores winter now- back to Beddington next. There have been some interesting local developments.
