Philadelphia Vireo (Vincent Legrand)
 Common Dolphins and Cory's Shearwaters in high seas (Vincent Legrand)
 White-rumped Sandpipers- 10 on the island yesterday as part of an influx in strong westerly conditions
 European Golden Plover- migrants coming in from east and west
 A large storm over 2500km wide (almost the entire North Atlantic) is currently battering the island
2014 Azores Report was launched here this year (if you would like a copy please email me, costs 10 euro)
Storm conditions continue making is rather difficult to find landbirds. The storm (a 2500km wide complex) is due to last until Sunday so it might be easier to find some birds once it calms down.
