Started off this morning by dipping both the Tennessee Warbler and Blue-winged Warbler and finding a Sedge Warbler was little compensation (but later found out it was a first for the Azores). I managed to see the Yellow-crowned Night Heron but apart from a couple of Wheatears it was turning into a rather slow day.
Then one hour before dark a Purple Martin flew in off the sea over mine and Eric's head and all hell broke loose. Most people were at sea looking for the Trindade Petrel so the boats returned to harbour and then we met the Israeli's who showed us some photos of two hirundines they had photographed earlier- one was a Cliff Swallow and the other a Purple Martin so looks like the Purple Martin had arrived earlier. Despite searching it was not seen again this evening.
Also had the Spotted Flycatcher so three Azores ticks today.
