Several new landbirds were discovered today: the Polish Birding Team found a Northern Parula at Fojo picnic site, with Hugues Dufourny locating a confused snipe flying around in the fog in the vicinity - this bird later well observed by Josh Jones on a nearby track before being flushed by the taxi bringing other birders for the parula! In terms of identification, it appears a good Wilson's Snipe.

Most bizarre find of the day was a Corncrake in the Tennessee Valley, where two Scarlet Tanagers and a Rose-breasted Grosbeak remained. Believe it or not but this is not a first for Corvo - in fact there are several records from the past decade!
