After going behind Bullfinches whit American birders Nancy and Muriel we only heared them singing in the bushes. The strong winds from last week and the big thunderstorm hanging in the sky turned the Eastern mountains in a desert whithout birds. Some shy Canaries and Chaffinches was all we had.Not even a good vieuw of a Goldcrest. So the only thing left was running down to the North coast of Ribeira Grande to spot the longstaying Cattle Egrets, 2 Bar-tailed Godwits and of course the Oystercatcher foind by my dear friend Jorge Cardoso some month ago.
