I tried a new spot the other week; a concrete drainage ditch near the airport that had filled in with mud/decaying water hyacinths. A nice little flock of mixed waders resulted including short billed dowitcher, semi-palmated sand, moorhen and a strange peep that the id forum guys eventually put down as western sandpiper (#75 - only 25 to the ton!).

Oh yeah - I've been seeing an old friend around the house again!

No interesting birds of late but have had bottlenosed dolphin, green and hawksbilled turtle and nurse and caribbean reef sharks so haven't been slacking.

Forgot to mention I snorkelled with a few juvie lemon shark on Anegada - shark tick #26 in the water/#27 in total.

hmm slightly embarassing this but feral pigeon has come off the list to be replaced by white crowned pigeon. After seeing some true white crowns elsewhere I realised what I'd put down as a strangely marked feral was actually a white crown. Haven't see either elsewhere in BVI so the list changes.

Meanwhile good views of Osprey yesterday and 7 kestrels on the ride home today. Also great views of spotted eagle ray and 2 bottlenosed dolphins today.
