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.
