Tjeldstø 27 February 2007 - Iceland Gull

Iceland Gull grønlandsmåke, Tjeldstø

A chance look out of the sitting room window on an otherwise birding free day produced a new species for my house list (and Tjeldstø for that matter) in the form of an Iceland Gull grønlandsmåke. Almost certainly the same bird that has been around in Øygarden since December.

Another species of note was a Red-throated Diver smålom heading south down Hjeltefjord.

A quick trip down to Solberg produced a single Oystercatcher tjeld and an Atlantic Puffin lunde but was otherwise uncharacteristically quiet.
