Tjeldstø 06 May 2006 - New for Øygarden!

Little Ringed Plover dverglo at Tjeldstø

A brief look at Husvatnet at Tjeldstø produced the unexpected today in the form of a Little Ringed Plover dverglo. This is the first record for Tjeldstø and for Øygarden - the species has only been recorded a few times at Voss and other inland sites previously. Unfortunately I only managed a couple of "record" shots before I had to leave.

The southerly winds have proved good for something!

Also present was a Wood Sandpiper grønstilk and the first Common Whitethroat tornsanger of the year (both birds have been present a couple of days....)
