Øygarden 01 Jaunuary 2008

Whooper Swan sangsvane near Alvheim
Black Redstart svartrødstjert at Sture
Purple Sandpipers fjæreplytt at Solberg

Kicked the year off very slowly, little more than a few "drive-bys", the Black Redstart svartrødstjert was still there but just a flighty and shy as previously.
A flock of 60 Purple Sandpipers fjæreplytt at Solberg was the biggest thus far this winter and there was a light passage of Little Auks alkekonge down Hjeltefjord (15 in about half an hour). The 34 Greylags grågås at Breivik are still there and have still not tempted anything "better" to join them....
Otherwise just the usual Tree Sparrow pilfink etc in the garden.
