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.
Otherwise there have been good numbers of migrants around. 3 Siberian Chiffchaffs have been around the Northern Islands.
The first Waxwings have come and are joined by hundreds of Bramblings and Redpolls including a Lesser Redpoll type.
A few scattered Yellow-browed Warblers are still around.
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.
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.
