GALLERY OF THE MONTH -- Azores Delight: Grey-tailed Tattler on Terceira Island in July-August 2017

This gallery proposes a selection of images taken on Terceira Island, Azores during a short trip (4 days) in August 2017. On day one, I visited the mythical quarry of Cabo da Praia where a Grey-tailed Tattler (5th WP record) had been found a month earlier. Fortunately the bird was still present, offering some great photographic opportunities. On day two, I visited a mixed Roseate and Common Tern colony at Ponta das Contendas. I also managed to relocate a Snowy Egret in the vicinity of the colony site but did not obtain better than a few record shots. On my last morning, I visited the quarry again, finding that the tattler had been joined by a Solitary Sandpiper.
