Tjeldstø 31 March 2008

Immature Whooper Swan sangsvane - the last remaining bird at Tjeldstø
Greylags grågås

Obligatory underexposed White-tailed Eagle havørn shot

Record shot of a male Pied Wagtail svartryggerle

An obvious arrival of Fieldfare gråtrost and Redwing rødvingtrost today at Tjeldstø with around 40 and 20 present respectively. Otherwise three alba wagtails comprised a male and a female Pied Wagtail svartryggerle and the first White Wagtail linerle of the year.

A flock of 35 Woodpigeon ringdue, several Meadow Pipits heipiplerke and a pair of Teal krikkand were also probably newly arriving birds. Two Brambling bjørkefink joined the growing flock of Chaffinches bokfink and a couple of Yellowhammer gulspurv in the garden - 2kg of sunflower seeds are being consumed daily now.....
