Dusky Warbler
Blomvåg, Øygarden, 25 October 2009

This Dusky Warbler turned up at Blomvåg in Øygarden on 25 October 2009. I heard about it whilst tracking down a Gyrfalcon at Herdlevær and was faced with the dilemma of aborting the hunt for the falcon which I had seen a couple of kilometres away wthout a telescope or going for the warbler. I chose the falcon initially but tried, and succeeded, with the warbler too. Things weren't made any easier as the light was fading fast.

I went back the next day and took these record shots of this vagrant warbler. It called often which was the only way to keep track of where it was. Luckily it favoured a small area of trees and stayed there throughout its stay. The bird was incredibly active and virtually impossible to photograph. The pictures on this page are the result of a couple of hours waiting for brief glimses.
