Øygarden 22 February 2008

Red breasted Merganser siland fishing at Tjeldstø

Willow Tit granmeis at Hjelme

Bird of the day was a Merlin dvergfalk seen flying over the road at Nautnes. Otherwise good numbers of seaduck at Solberg having been forced inshore due to the mountainous seas. A few Velvet Scoter sjøorre were among the Eiders ærfugl and Long-tailed Ducks havelle here.
A Sparrowhawk spurvhauk at Tjeldstø was the first there for some time. A few flocks of Crossbill sp korsnebb still in the area too.
Some Willow Tits granmeis from last autumn's invasion still remain - a small flock fed beside the road at Hjelme.
