Tjeldstø 15 June 2006 "Common" Crane
Common Redshank rødstilk
Glorious sunny weather, light winds
Showing my dad the reserve resulted in a new bird species for Tjeldstø - a Common Crane trane. It circled over the area and eventually disappeared to the north, gradually losing height - perhaps it landed further north in Øygarden?
Breeding waders very obvious, including a Common Snipe enkeltbekkasin nest right beside a footpath.
