Øygarden early July 2008

Common Swift tårnseiler

Goldcrest fuglekonge
Coal Tit svartmeis
Above and below Crested Tit toppmeis

Not birding as such, but some continued indications of return wader passage with the first Ruff brusfugl of the autumn accompanying a small flock of Lapwing vipe south over Tjeldstø on 03 July and three southbound Whimbrel småspove over Herdlevær on 04 July.

Swifts tårnseiler, no doubt on extended feeding trips began to show on 05 July. Other indications of movement are small flocks of Common Crossbill grankorsnebb "everywhere". This seems to be part of a larger movement mirrored both on the Shetlands and offshore.

Otherwise the woods are full of fledged passerines and their overworked parents...
