Me and Simon started at the lighthouse valley today while Team Spain went to look for the Red-eyed Vireo by the Camping area and Staffan went to Cancelas to look for the American Redstart. Me and Simon hit the jackpot as there was both a Red-eyed Vireo and an American Redstart (new bird judging from photos) in the lighthouse valley! Beautiful place, but far away and lacks mobile signal...
Got picked up by Manuel at noon and dropped of at da Ponte with Staffan who we picked up along the road. After a brief lunch we split up to try to find and stake out the Black-and-white Warbler for the arriving birders; Pierre, Eric, Vincent, Fred, Peter and Darryl. Simon went down and I went up (as usual) and the Black-and-white was still around in the same area as usual. Surprisingly it was soon joined by a Black-throated Green Warbler (maybe same as in Fojo)! This island is without doubt on fire! Most of the arriving birders saw Black-and-white Warbler, Black-throated Green Warbler and American Redstart during their first afternoon - what a start! The grand finale of the day was a hunting Common Nighthawk above the power station that Eric picked out at dusk!
