Today I went birding with Harri and Markus on Suðuroy – visiting birders from Finland.
First we checked Sumba, where they already had located the 3rd Steller’s Eider for the Faroes and we found it easily close to the shore.
Then we checked the gardens, where good numbers of Blackcaps were present. We also found Willow Warbler and Lesser Whitethroat and Goldfinch.
Then we checked futher north on the island and a total of 56 species were seen including 18 Yellow-browed Warblers, Barred Warbler, Common Rosefinch and 3 Goldfinches.
