Easterlies continue

Leach's Petrel

Vincent on TV.

SPEA, Azores birders and the locals
Another quiet day on the rock as the easterlies continue. A few European migrants have arrived over the last couple of days including 2 Kestrels, 1 Ringed Plover, 18+ Snow Bunting and also Short-eared Owl on the beach rocks this evening.

A Leach's Petrel (above) was picked up exhausted by the SPEA team and released this evening at the harbour.

Vincent and I spent the morning with Luis from SPEA making a documentary.

The Parula was seen again in De Vinte today and the Swainson's Thrush, Purple Martin and Red-eyed Vireo were still present yesterday.
