(1-2) Fuerteventura Costa Calma area. There were two birds: one found on 29.12 and present until 2.1 at least (Eckhard Moeller) and a 2nd one from 1-2.1 at the eastern end of the 'forest' (David Walsh). One still there on 4.1 (Eckhard Moeller) and 6.1 too, see a thumbnail here (Eckhard Moeller). One remained there on 16.1 (Pete Marsh and Jean Roberts).

(3) Fuerteventura Betancuria area. On 31.12 a bird was found by the children's play area between the church and the car park (David Walsh). This bird remained there on 5.1 (Eckhard Moeller). Two birds were seen there on 15.1 (Pete Marsh and Jean Roberts).

(4-6) Fuerteventura Ajuy area. On 1.1 there were 2 (David Walsh) and three individuals were located at the gorge 1-2 km before the village (David Walsh, Eckhard Moeller).

(7) Fuerteventura Pájara area. On 3.1 one bird was found (Eckhard Moeller). There were four there on 17.1 (Pete Marsh and Jean Roberts).

(8) Lanzarote One was found near Montaña Blanca, Lanzarote, on 5.1 (Juan Sagardía). On 6.1 it remained there (Juan Sagardía).

(9-11) Lanzarote The three birds seen in or near Teguise Golf, Lanzarote in December, were relocated on 6.1 (Juan Sagardía).

(12) Lanzarote There was another new bird at Teguise, Lanzarote on 6.1 (Juan Sagardía).

(13-15) Lanzarote There were three more new birds elsewhere in Lanzarote on 9.1 (Juan Sagardía).

(16-20) Lanzarote Five new birds were relocated elsewhere in Lanzarote on 10.1 including one ringed bird carrying a German ring HELGOLAND GERMANY V459... at Los Valles, Teguise, Lanzarote (Juan Sagardía). See a thumbnail here. According to Tobias Rautenberg via Rare Birds in Spain facebook page, the V459 is clearly part of the ring series used in Helgoland in late September 2013. About 25 different birds were ringed there and 15 of them on 28.9.2013 so probably that was the ring date of this bird in Germany before travelling into Lanzarote. This bird was seen again on 11.1 and 12.1 (David Pérez) when it was photographed again and it seems that the ring ends in '46'. See photos in his blog ornitoadicción here and a photo below (David Pérez). VL45946 ! nSix remained by Costa Teguise, Lanzarote on 28.1 (Nacho Castelao).
