I’m speachless… or maybe not. But it looks like I’ve added two new birds to the Faroese list in two days. Yesterday one of the yellow-browed turned out to be a greenish warbler – thanks Frank and Geir. The story can be read here!
Today I checked Viðareiði: Nothing. Hvannasund: Two yellow-browed warblers. Árnafjørður: One yellow-browed, one barred warbler, two willows, several blackcaps and a blyth’s reed warbler. It stayed most of the time in a fuchsia and was very hard to see well. But suddenly it came out into some herbs and I got some pics. First of all it didn’t have the typical reddish-brown colour of most reed warblers, but a more sandy-greyish colour on the back. Secondly it had a rather distinct superlicium. Thirdly the primaryprojection was short. If accepted it will be the first for the Faroes.
