Øygarden 04 June 2006

Took a trip out in the evening to a few localities. Plenty of roding Woodcock rugde - this species is a lot more common as a breeding bird in Øygarden than I realised. Very few Sedge Warblers sivsanger singing, continuing the apparent recent locally deceasing trend.

At a new site for me a Merlin dvergfalk was definitely bird of the day - giving hope that this raptor has not in fact disappeared as a breeding species in Øygarden.

A bonus bird was a Yellow Wagtail gulerle flying over the garden.
