Øygarden 26 April 2006

Bar-tailed Godwit lappspove

Eurasian Jackdaw kaie

Eurasian Oystercatcher tjeld

More strong winds and even more rain meant that Skogsøy was something of a wash / blow out today, although eight Barnacle Geese hvitkingås flew over as I left.

A quick look at Tjeldstø produced two new species for this locality for 2006: a House Martin taksvale and a Eurasian Jackdaw kaie (a scarce migrant at Tjeldstø). Another noteworthy bird was a male Pied Wagtail svartryggerle, possibly the same bird that has been around for a while.

In the evening the sun came out - and so did the Bar-tailed Godwit lappspove that first showed on 23rd April.
