Terrible pictures of the Little Grebes dvergdykker at Rong

Checked up on a few sites today. The best sighting was two Little Grebes dvergdykker at Rong, at least one of these birds has been present since the New Year bird race and two were sighted there some days ago.

The Greylag grågås flock at Breivik remains in the same fields but only 23 counted today - although it is probable that a some of them were hidden from view.

Other stuff worth noting included a couple of Common Snipe enkeltbekkasin, 15+ Purple sandpipers fjæreplytt, a Red-throated Diver smålom and a Little Auk alkekonge at Tjeldstø. A flock of at least 45 Purple Sanpipers fjæreplytt was at Solberg.
Six Tree Sparrow pilfink in my garden is somewhat lower than in normal winters, hope they are not disappearing from Tjeldstø too.....
