No sign of the "good" gulls today - had hoped to have some photo opportunities in the fantastic light today. However, there was still plenty of action at the herring holding-pens.

Three Oystercatcher tjeld were the first I've seen in Øygarden this year as was a single northbound Skylark sanglerke.
A Curlew storspove and 20 Purple Sandpiper fjærelplytt were at Solberg which was otherwise rather quiet.
Plenty of eagles about today too - courtship flights / territorial disputes a common sight the last week or so.Oystercatcher tjeld at Alvheim today
