Tjeldstø 01 April 2008 - Pied Wagtail

Male Pied Wagtail svartryggerle

One of the many Fieldfare gråtrost about

Despite the rather dull and wet conditions and the short time actually spent out of the house (barely even a "drive by")it was a reasonably productive day. More thrushes in today with up to 80 Fieldfare gråtrost in the fields along with smaller numbers of Redwing rødvingtrost. Chaffinch bokfink numbers also increased greatly overnight.
Best bird was a male Pied Wagtail svartryggerle feeding around one of the barns.
The briefest of checks at Solberg produced a flock of around 20 Purple Sandpipers fjæreplytt and only four Long-tailed Duck havelle.
