Hjelme 06 March 2006 - Migrants Arrive

The first definite spring arrivals were noted today with a minimum of 22 Eurasian Oystercatcher tjeld present. More Oystercatcher tjeld were heard heading north over Tjeldstl around 22:00.

I managed to snap a few record shots of a Red-necked Grebe gråstrupedykker on the sea - there may well have been more.

The best bird, in an Øygarden context was a Dipper fossekall flushed up from the shore - no doubt driven to the coast by the current cold weather.
