Herdlevær 03 November 2006
Apalling record shot of a Goldfinch stillits (ISO 400, poor light)
Spent the afternoon getting wet at Herdlevær. Some good birds to be seen, the best one being a pipit that was at worst a Richard's Pipit tartarpiplerke. A flock of 10 Goldfinch stillits and a tristis type Chiff-chaff gransanger were the next best.
The supprting cast included a Blackcap munk, a Golden Plover heilo (getting late for this species now), 20+ Brambling bjørkefink and most of the usual species.
