Værøy Day 1 2016

Internet connection is going to be a problem this year so my posts might be light on photos although today I have none to post.

My two hours of birding after arriving gave me a Norwegian tick (Turtle Dove) and I found a Værøy first (Wryneck) but I DIDN'T have a single Yellow-browed Warbler. I only birded the north of the island and the boyz had had 14 in the south earlier but even so I don't think I have ever failed to get YbW on my first evening. There are generally few birds around at the moment but the others have seen Barred Warbler, Gyr Falcon, Hawk Owl and another Værøy first in the form of Rook so I'm excited about what tomorrow will bring.
