Tempest Borne Tanager

The storm has produced! Summer Tanager at Fojo/Cancelas today found by Stefan and David. This is the 4th for the WP (I think)- the 3rd one for Corvo.

Also a new Yellow-rumped Warbler found by Stefan.
Before news broke of the Tanager we were in the caldera seeing not too much- 1 Curlew Sandpiper, 6 Teal, 1 Shoveler, 9 Blackwit, 1 Tufted Duck, 1 Pintail, 8 Mallard, 1 Black Duck type, 20+ Snipe and a couple of Grey Heron.
If the plane comes tomorrow this will be our last full day on Corvo. Bonser and Co arrive tomorrow to take the late autumn shift.
