Tjeldstø 24 October - a good day

One of the many Starling stær at Tjeldstø today
Goldcrest fuglekonge
Plenty about today with highlights being a Lapland Bunting lappspurv, a flock of 12 Waxwing sidensvans and a Grey-headed Woodpecker gråspett. The supporting cast included two Goldfinch stillits, 10 Long-tailed Tit stjertmeis, a Great Spotted Woodpecker flaggspett and several Skylark sanglerke.
Good numbers of Fieldfare gråtrost both in the fields and on direct migration along with smaller numbers of Redwing rødvingtrost, Blackbird svarttrost, Starling stær and a couple of late(ish) Song Thrush måltrost. Small flocks of Crossbill korsnebb still very obvious, several Twite bergirisk and a few Brambling bjørkefink were also noted.
Throw in a Sparrowhawk spurvhauk and a White-tailed Eagle havørn and it was all in all not too bad....
