Birds in the Faroe Islands


The Guillemot - Uria aalge

A guillemot in the village of Hósvík on the island of Streymoy Known in Faroes as Lomvigi

Reports from the islands of Nólsoy, Skúvoy and Mykines all show that the number of puffins, guillemots and razorbills to be seen was much lower this year and is believed to be because of lack of food.
