Six Glossy ibises and nothing more

Take the log of yesterday evening and remove from it the two Nearctic waders (Spotted sand and Semi plover): you have the log of tonight. Surely not the kind of beginning to our trip that we were prepared for. The wind has been blowing harder and harder from west/north-west since Thursday, but still no american landbird have found their way to Corvo. Alternatively, there could be some birds already present here but then they have eluded us so far. Either way, everything remains to be done: finding the first good bird of the season!
