Øygarden 01 March 2006

Eagles everywhere today with singles at Solberg and Svellingen and a number of birds flying around. Minimum of five birds invloved in the northern part of Øygarden alone...

A flock of at least 80 Purple Sandpipier fjæreplytt at Svellingen is the largest flock I have seen this winter - possibily indicating that birds are returning from their wintering grounds. A minimum of six Black Guillemot teist also at Svellingen.

Otherwise much the same as usual with at least 200 Long-tailed Duck havelle and a few each of Velvet sjøorre and Common Scoter svartand
