Spoonbill

Yesterday Marjun Joensen found a juvenile Spoonbill in Skopun on Sandoy. Marjun managed to photograph the bird from her car.

Spoonbill is extremely rare on the Faroes as there are only two previous records. The first one is prior to 1655 as is the oldest record of any rare bird from the Faroes. The second was in November 1896 also on Sandoy.

    Stakkels, stakkels Skestork…! Den fandt dog den rigtige biotop, men gad vist om der er mad nok i den vandpyt… Atlantic Airways burde sponsorere indfangning og fly retur til Danmark…
    v.h.
