Øygarden 13 March 2008

Mouse skull from owl pelletOwl pellet - probably from Long-eared Owl hornugle
Woodpecker hole
Went to check out an interesting area which was surpisingly birdless - it was all about tracks and signs today. However, a White-tailed Eagle havørn nest, some very interesting owl pellets - probably Long-eared Owl hornugle or possbily Tengmalm's Owl perleugle. Any owl other than Eagle Owl is a rarity in Øygarden so this is quite an interesting find.
Also plenty of Woopecker spett holes - some obviously old and others seemingly much fresher.

Otherwise just a Woodcock rugde and a small flock of unidentifed Crossbill korsnebb.
Common Snipe enkeltbekkasin heard singing for the first time this year at Tjeldstø.
