Øygarden 07 March 2008

Male Goldeneye kvinand at Tjeldstø today

Lapwing vipe

At Tjeldstø a newly arrived Lapwing vipe and a Snipe enkeltbekkasin were the best birds. Most of the usual stuff including nine Whoopers sangsvane and a White-tailed Eagle havørn also seen.
A very breif stop at Hellesøy produced the first Woodpigeon ringdue in Øygarden this year.
Hjelme Vest was quite productive with the best observations being a Great Northern Diver islom on the sea, a Turstone steinvender and 30 Purple Sandpipers fjæreplytt. Two Siskin grønnsisik were the first I have seen in Øygarden since December.
