Dark-bellied Brents østlig ringgås at Breivik

Still frustratingly difficult finding time to get out and about - despite there obviously being plenty going on. With a garden full of Golcrests fuglekonge and Blackcap munk it isn't hard to imagine what must be going on along the coast.....Plenty of thrushes (mainly Redwing rødvingtrost but also Blackbird svarttrost, Fieldfare gråtrost and Song Thrush måltrost) also on the move.

A breif trip out produced a couple of Dark-bellied Brent Geese østlig ringgås at Breivik, together with a single Greylag grågås.

At Herdlevær at least 400 Starling stær, more Blackcap munk, Redwing rødvingtrost and other migrants. Best bird here was a Peregrine vandrefalk chasing a flock of Woodpigeon ringdue.

One of the hundreds of Starling stær at Herdlevær today
