Autumn 2006: While I've been away

There has been little coverage in Øygarden during the autumn and hence few reports, but there have been good birds seen in the area. The following records come from Fugler i Hordaland and private e-mails.

Highlight was the "county's" first Black Kite svartglente at Skogsøy on 17 September. Plenty of other birds were also on the move at Skogsøy the same day, including Curlew Sandpipers tundrasnipe and Little Stint dvergsnipe

Also a Sooty Shearwater grålire, also at Skogsøy on 27 September.

A number of Yellow-browed Warbler gulbrynsanger have also reported including one at Herdelvær on 01 October. Others have been seen at Sæle and a Red-throated Pipit lapppiplerke was reported from Sæle
