Danish Vagrants

Today saw the return of the sole Scandinavian White-winged Scoter (stejnegeri), the drake off Blåvands Huk, Esbjerg. Also, the almost never seen, Århus Harbor Glacous-winged Gull is probably still around? These two WP megas are only 150 km. apart (Rolf Skagen)

A male PALLAS'S ROSEFINCH was photographed in WP Russia, in Ulyanovsk (on the Volga) on the 25th and 26th January, feeding on rowan berries. No news since then...Seen by Galina Pilyugina and Andrei Moskvichev (information via Geert Groot Koerkamp)
