Svellingen 25 February 2007 - Cleanup

Oil from the Server still very much in evidence at Svellingen

Bark used as an absorbent for the oil in the foreground, new oil in the centre of the picture

Not out birding yet again, just a quick look at Svellingen - it seems that despite obvious cleanup efforts some new oil is still being washed up.
Only birds of note here was a distant flock of approximately 40 Purple Sandpipers fjæreplytt and a few White-tailed Eagle havørn.

Rather frustratingly I noticed that at least one of the 11 or more Tree Sparrows pilfink in my garden is ringed - unfortunately the light was going and I managed to read only the last digit of the number in addition to confirming that the ring is Norwegian.....better luck tomorrow?
