The last two days have been wet and windy. Birding has been quite hard and challenging. Three days ago another Parrot Crossbill was found in Tórshavn and is still present there today.
Today I found a Whinchat, Siberian and Common Chiffchaff and Iceland Gull in Sørvágur.
On the 9th Rodmund found 5 Ring-necked Ducks at Sørvágsvatn. Today they were still present even though I only got four birds in the same frame. 5 Ring-necked Ducks together on the Faroes is truly a remarkable record.
In Miðvágur two Pied Flycatchers, a Dunlin and a Redpoll sp were around.
In Hvalvík 3 Chaffinches and a Blackcap were seen and at Eiði two Yellow-browed Warblers, Goldcrest, Long-tailed Duck and another Blackcap were seen.
In these windy conditions birding takes a long time. And it looks like quite a few migrants have moved on in connection with the storms that are coming and going. Wind speed have been measuring 48 m/s yesterday and for a while all the wind stations measured more than 30 m/s.
Hopefully some better weather and good birds will turn up before the autumn is over.
