Saturday 13 January 2007

Several oiled Herring Gulls gråmåke after the "Server" ran aground last night at Fedje seen at both Tjeldstø and Solberg.

At Solberg at least one, probably two Eurasian Curlew storspove were the first for several days, plenty of Long-tailed Duck havelle and Eiders ærfugl in the bay - forced in by heavy seas further out.

At Tjeldstø a small flock of Purple Sandpipers fjæreplytt were the first of 2007 and a few Common Snipe enkeltbekkasin in the usual place. Four Whooper Swan sangsvane is the highest count thus far this winter - a very poor year for this species. A few Redwing rødvingtrost joined flocks of Fieldfare (40+) gråtrost in the area.
