Tjeldstø 11 July 2006

Barn Swallow låvsvale
White Wagtail linerle

Southerly with showers much of the day. Little in the reserve, with nearly all the Common Redshank rødstilk now cleared out. Lots of species feeding fledged young in the area, including Linnet tornirisk, Barn Swallow låvsvale and White Wagtail linerle.

In the evening a flock of 14 Northern Lapwing vipe were seen heading south and a Peregrine vandrefalk flew over the garden. Another bird of interest was a Northern Gannet havsule heading north up the fjord - relatively uncommon on the east side of Øygarden unless there are strong onshore winds.
