Øygarden 09 April 2006

An eventful day for two reasons: the first White-billed Divers gulnebblom of the season were seen - a winter plumaged bird heading south and two birds well on their way into breeding plumage heading north. The other event was that there was actually ANOTHER BIRDER at Skogsøy today - for the first time in weeks.

Other birds included excellent views of a Snow Bunting snøspurv and a Woodcock rugde on the way out to the look-out.

At home a Brambling bjørkefink joined the Chaffinches bokfink at the bird feeder.
