Update!

Reed Bunting

Due to the flu and lack of time I haven’t been good at updating the last few days.

Most exciting news are a Common Treecreeper found by Turid Vestergaard at Trongisvágur a few days ago. The 2nd for the Faroes.

Sibirean Chiffchaff

Otherwise there have been good numbers of migrants around. 3 Siberian Chiffchaffs have been around the Northern Islands.

Lesser Redpoll type

The first Waxwings have come and are joined by hundreds of Bramblings and Redpolls including a Lesser Redpoll type.

Yellow-browed Warbler

A few scattered Yellow-browed Warblers are still around.

Peregrine Falcon

A Peregrine that was found exhausted on a fishing vessel is still being kept in a voliere. Quite a sad destiny for such a majestic bird.

Turtle Dove

In Tórshavn I found a juv. Turtle Dove today.

A pale Redpoll was at Velbastaður, but maybe not pale enough for a proper Arctic Redpoll?

Right now I am on a tour with the birding society to Suðuroy. The weather is bad with rain and gale force winds.

From the ferry we saw a Sooty Shearwater. The only other good birds was a Shoveler at Hvalba.

  2. Thumbs up for the Turtle Dove! This is a rare bird these days thanks to the French. I found one on Utsira some two weeks ago, the first since 2012, meaning they are not annual anymore.

    It would be interesting to know whether the origin of the Peregrine is European or American!

  4. The bird captioned Lesser Redpoll type is a Common Redpoll rostrata.
