During two good gulling days by Dominic Mitchell on Terceira where he saw 10 species, local observer Jorge Cardoso brought this score to eleven with a Glaucous Gull at Praia de Monte Verde, Ribeira Grande, Sao Miguel.
After the two saved American bitterns this winter (one of them probably still present on Paul de Praia) the local police department from Maia brought in a Little Bittern on 23-03-2012 founded on the beach. After being pictured it was released on Lagoa do Sao Braz.
Pedro Madruga once again had a decent bird from his garden at Lajes do Pico today - this superb adult Black-crowned Night Heron. This is the 29th or 30th record of this species on the Azores (depending on whether you count last week's bird, also an adult on Pico, as the same bird).
