Tjeldstø 24 February 2007

Still not getting out and about but from the house managed to pick up the first Teal krikkand of the year for Tjeldstø with a pair present on Husvatnet. Other signs of spring included three Northern Lapwing vipe.

The Great Black-backed Gulls svartbak have started their courtships so there is plenty of noise at times. Other birds included 11 Common Scoter svartand on the sea in front of the house and a juvenile White-tailed Eagle havørn.

A VERY brief look at Solberg / Alvheim produced nothing other than a few eagles, 60+ Long-tailed Duck havelle and an oiled Guillemot lomvi - another "Server" vivtim?
