New arrivals

Yellow-browed Warbler

After a period of bad weather birding has again become good. A few days ago I found the 3rd ever Little Bunting for the Faroes at Viðareiði, but I didn’t get any pics as it was chased away by a house sparrow.

Today I checked Hvalvík. New birds have arrived and the mass invasion of Yellow-browed Warblers just continues. 7 Yellow-browed were found but many more could be around – and remeber this is just one village in the middle of the Faroes. Hundreds have already been seen by birders this autumn. But there must have been thousands maybe?

Other birds around included Barred Warbler, Redpolls, Common Teal, hundreds of Redwings and a Red-breasted Flycatcher.
