Aberrant birds on the Azores

In preparation for an article on aberrant birds on the Azores, dates of observations/sightings, and in particular photographs, are sought. This applies to birds with leucistic, part-leucistic or albino characteristics.
   In addition, all known verified occurrences of the melanistic form of the Blackcap are required (for previous confirmed records see Hering, J. (2005): First record of a ôVeiled Blackcapö, the melanistic form of the Blackcap Sylvia atricapilla, on Flores, Azores. - Limicola 19: 217-224].

   Many thanks in advance, Jens Hering, Germany.
