Øygarden 09 January 2007

Eurasian Shag toppskarv
Greylag Geese grågås at Kollsnes

Despite gale force winds a few new species for the year were found, all at "Hjelme West". These were a Razorbill alke (auks have been very thin on the ground recently), a female Black Grouse orrhøne and a Eurasian Woodcock rugde.
The Grey Heron gråhegre roost at Dåvøy numbered 48 today - this is one of a number of large heron roosts in Øygarden.
In the garden at least three Bramblings bjørkefink joined 12 Chaffinches bokfink, 10 Tree Sparrows pilfink and at least 40 Greenfinches grønnfink at the feeder.
