Today I dropped my parents of at the airport. So I had some time birding. First I checked Vágar. There were hundreds of purple sandpipers, turnstones and a single knot in Miðvágur.
A pod of pilot whales were caught a few days ago and both starlings, turnstones and gulls were fouraging on the left overs.
The gardens were empty except for a single robin and the only other good birds were five tundra bean geese in Hvalvík. It is the 5th record for the Faroes, third record of ssp. rossicus, second record of more than one bird and the first record of more than two birds together. OK, enough about records…
Still no laughing gulls or anything, but the gull season has just started!
