What a day!!! Today a incredable wader party as not seen for some years on my local patch. After meeting Peter Alfrey and Daryl on the bridge between Lagoa Azul and Verde we had a fast try around Sete Cidades whithout anything special coming up. Already tipped by Carlos Ribeiro about the increasing number of White'rumped sandpipers,21 until than, we went down to the seaside catching some sun.Before Peter and Daryl climed out of their car I spotted the Semipalmated sandpiper and some White rumped fellows like I did the last three days.
While trying to count the always moving White-rumped sandpipers we found the first Semipalmated plover and inmidiatly another one hopping around between the Turnstones and some red knots. Three american especies on the same spot. Not bad.
