Day 9: Mourning Scare

Sei/Bryde's Whale? Just off shore this morning 
Yank flyover- Buff-bellied Pipit, calling and flying over towards Flores 
Semipalmated Plover in the fields 
White-rump Sandpipers in the streets 
Mystery warbler- somewhere in here 
Slender-burnished brass- pretty common on the island
Missed the cab this morning to the valleys so Darryl and I had a look round the coast and fields. We had a large whale in the channel between Corvo and Flores and had a Buff-bellied Pipit fly over the coastline and heading towards Flores. Then we got a message of a possible Mourning Warbler at Ribeira da Ponte so spent the rest of the day there seeing bugger all.
