Pallas’ Leaf Warbler

Today I went to a reception, because a new book has been published about Faroese ringing and re coverings.

On the way to Tórshavn I stopped at Hvalvík. The plantation was full of life. Goldcrests everywhere. Several Blackcaps, Lesser Whitethroats, Chiffchaffs,  Redwings and Song Thrushes.

3 Yellow-browed Warblers and a Pied Flycatcher were also good birds, but a Arctic Redpoll was the best – though I didn’t manage to photograph it.

After the reception I decided to check Kirkjubø. And the same was true there. Birds everywhere. Lots and lots of Goldcrests, 3 Yellow-browed Warblers, a Willow Warbler, some Chiffchaffs and a Redstart.

But the star bird was a splendid Pallas’ Leaf Warbler. This is my second record and the 4th for the Faroes. The two first records were birds found dead.

Tomorrow I am going to Svínoy… I can only imagine…
