Red-backed Shrike and more

Willow Warbler

It has been raining and quite windy during the last few days, but now the weather is awesome again. Yesterday we reached a stunning 15 C. But the nights have become cold – down to 5 C. This means that many birds have departed.

Only a few lingering migrants were present yesterday. But it is almost calm, and that means that some new birds will arrive. Most likely it will be the more determined migrants like Barred and Garden Warblers.

The Marsh Warbler is still present in Kunoy and gave amazing views the other day.

In Hvannasund a Red-backed Shrike has been outside my window for a few days now.

In Kunoy a possible Lesser Redpoll was present a few days ago.

 

The forecast looks reasonable. Not strong south-easterly winds, but almost calm. So there will be some birds around during the next week – but not huge arrivals I guess. But anything is better than freezing northerly winds. Hopefully a good surprise will turn up soon. And hopefully the first Yellow-browed is soon to arrive 🙂
