Tjeldstø 21 February 2007 - Blackbird eating Cuckoo Wrasse

Cuckoo Wrasse blåstål

Haven't managed to get out birding for what feels like an eternity but in reality "only" a little over a week. There have been some indications of migration with a few small flocks of Starling stær seen at Tjeldstø and other places in Øygarden.

Three Greylags grågås still present at Tjeldstø and a few Brambling bjørkefink dropped into the garden to join the ever growing flock of Chaffinch bokfink and the usual Tree Sparrows pilfink.

More unusually a Blackbird svarttrost fed on a freshly dead Cuckoo Wrasse blåstål I threw near one of my bird feeders.
