Today I went to the hospital to pick up my wife and our 3 days old son. On the way there I did a few stops and found the first Yellow-browed Warbler of the year at Rituvík along with a Willow Warbler and two Blackcaps.

When I had picked them up we stopped at the plantation in Hvalvík for a short break. There were 4 Blackcaps, 1 Yellow-browed Warbler and some Chiffchaff and Willow Warblers around. But the best surprise was a 1cy Greater Spotted Woodpecker. The first on the Faroes for 41 years (I bet there have been many, but non have been registered).

Autumn is really kicking in and let’s hope some something really good turns up soon – like in Shetland. The Blyth’s Reed Warbler was still present two days ago and gave good views from my friends living room.
