Semipalmated Sandpiper (juvenile)
Spent the last couple of days on Terceira, while a team of 15 have gone on to Graciosa to do pelagics from there. Weather has not been the best so, so far unable to get out to the marine banks we wanted to explore. We (Jaffa and I) managed a short pelagic yesterday evening. Spent some time in the quarry looking at the waders and also went out with a botanists this morning to learn a few of the endemic and native plants.
The Graciosa pelagic team, led by Rich Bonser went over on the ferry yesterday evening and managed to get off shore today.
