Tjeldstø 20 October 2006

Little Auk alkekonge on Rotevatnet, Tjeldstø
Highlight during a very brief walk was a Little Auk alkekonge that landed on one of the lakes just long enough to have its photo taken. Strange that it landed on freshwater when the fjords and sea are such a short distance away. This is the first freshwater record for Tjeldstø, although the species is common enough over the fjords.
Hundreds of Redwing rødvingtrost and other thrushes, bushes full of Goldcrest fuglekonge and several Balckcap munk also seen along with several Skylark sanglerke and a dozen or so Common Snipe enkeltbekkasin.
