Tjeldstø 26 June 2006

Northern Lapwing vipe, this bird is ringed and breeding in the area.

Fresh northerly wind but nice and sunny. Best bird was a Peregrine vandrefalk which caused mayhem among the nesting gulls. This species is probably a lot more regular than records would suggest - the gulls are a lot better at spotting falcons than I am.'

Another bird of interest was a Northern Lapwing vipe wearing a ring - something I didn't notice whilst taking some pictures. It would be fascinating to get close enough to read off the number and find out where this bird was ringed. Quite a colourful bird in the sunlight.
