Herdlevær 17 September 2011 - YB Warbler and Hen Harrier

Easterly winds, sunny and calm.

Herdlevær came good again today. Highlights were a ringtail Hen Harrier myrhauk and at least one Yellow-browed Warbler gulbrynsanger - probably at least two. Lots of activity with several phylloscopus warblers that "got away".

Other birds included a Spotted Flycatcher gråfluesnapper (same from yesterday?), a Peregrine vandrefalk, a Kestrel tårnfalk, several Goldcrest fuglekonge and another Wren gjerdesmett showing that some of these are heading to the coast or perhaps even further afield.
