Depart from Corvo
Corvo. Only those who have ventured there understand :-)
The weather calmed down and the plane arrived as planned.
Yesterday evening we went to an Azores birdwatching meeting on Sao Miguel island. Great slide shows, interesting discussion about the future of birding on the Azores, a fascinating presentation (i think it was fascinating- it was in Portuguese) by Pedro Rodrigues about genetic studies on 'Azores Chaffinch' and other endemic Azorean passerine 'sub-species' and a good chance to meet up with other Azores ornithologists/birders.
Back to the local patch tomorrow but will post up a highlights of Corvo 2011 asap.
