Yellow-browed Warbler as expected

During the last week a lot of Yellow-browed Warblers were reported in Norway. On Værøy on sunday alone 160 individuals were found!!
Did some small tours  last week in Bergen without finding one, but today on Turøy one was calling, but behaving elusive. Further many Great Spotted Woodpeckers hanging around with today 6 or so on Turøy, but many more other places.
Groups of redpolls were puzzling me. Most were flying over. I could not put a name on them. The last few days a lot of Lesser Redpolls are being ringed, so I wonder if today's birds are Lesser Redpolls. But I never saw these numbers with this species. These numbers suggest maybe Mealy Redpolls...
