Today was a bit of a relaxation day, what with the manic nature of the two days I was in school doing all the results stuff being sandwiched in between coming here and getting back from Ecuador. Nevertheless, there was still some good birds to be had with a similar line up in the quarry to yesterday, less the Least Sand but with a Hudsonian Whimbrel and Curlew Sandpiper instead. And a trip up to the centre of the island was typically hard work, though a Glossy Ibis that has been about for a while decided to show itself at Lagoa do Junco.
