Over and out

Today was extremely blustery, and a check of Lighthouse Valley by the last birder on Corvo this year, Lee Gregory, revealed nothing though fog shrouded there and all of the ribeiras. Therefore, with a strong southerly/southwesterly a seawatch from the windmills produced the goods - a (presumed) Fea's Petrel flew east between 2.50pm and 3.02pm coming as near as 300 yards at its closest.

So with the flight out tomorrow, that closes the season for 2013 so who will those two Glossy Ibises on the airfield, that were still about today, have for company from now on? And, unfortunately, the question of how long will they last also comes to mind...

It has been another eventful season on 'the rock' this year, and although the general consensus being that it has been tough graft this year with a fair amount of fog (certainly in the final 10 days of the month), the same faces will be back once again and doing it all over next autumn. The last one on Corvo has closed the lights for autumn 2013.
