It has been stormy day at Kihnu island. Wind turned from southeast to west reaching up to 20 m/s. So it has been very quiet birdmorning with only few passing seabirds. Small groups of Long-tailed Ducks/ aul Clangula hyemalis occured and one 1 Parasitic Skua/ söödikänn Stercorarius parasiticus has been encounterd on migration.
Mariliis observed in the morning Grey Wagtail/ jõgivästrik Motacilla cinerea at the northwestern tip of the island. And she managed to find also uncommon migrant - Yellow-browed Warbler/ vööt-lehelind Phylloscopus inornatus among the Coldcrests/ pöialpoiss Regulus regulus. Although I was less than 100 meters away scanning another flock, I still managed to miss the bird. This is typical behaviour for this species - they just disappear at front of your eyes.
