I know I am lucky and privileged to out birding on Værøy at the moment so I will try not to moan. It has been gorgeous weather today, sunny and little wind and just being able to be outside in amazing scenery is enough in itself. We also had an improvement on the bird front with a Turtle Dove, a new Olive-backed Pipit, 5 Yellow-browed Warblers and 3 Siberian (tristis) Chiffchaffs. I was not lucky enough to see all of these though and had to make do with 2 Y-b W and hearing a single tristis.
Tomorrow is my last day and the weather forecast suggests there will be a slight improvement on the bird front. If I find a Red-flanked Bluetail then it will have all been worth it 😊
