Pallas's Grasshopper Warbler

Siberian bird found in Sweden

A type of bird common in Siberia and Mongolia has come to Sweden's archipelago Gryt, a few hours south of Stockholm.

The Pallas's Grasshopper Warbler, which has never been spotted in Sweden before, was suddenly discovered on Tuesday when it got stuck in a net used by scientists to study bird movements.

Scientists put a tag on the bird before they released it to track its movements.
