Yesterday Janus Hansen found a Glossy Ibis in Sandavágur. Rodmund á Kelduni also twitched the bird and wrote a small article that can be seen here:

This is the 4th record for the Faroes. The last record was in 2013, where a flock of 13 birds were observed in late December and a few birds lingered till spring arrived.

Other news include a White-tailed Eagle seen on Svínoy. It could be the same individual that has roamed the islands since spring.
