Half an hour in the early morning beside Husvatnet, Tjeldstø proved productive. Highlight was a Wood Sandpiper grønnstilk actively feeding around the edge of the lake. A couple of Ruff brusfugl flew in and a Merlin dvergfalk buzzed the reserve - promptly scaring out some Dunlin myrsnipe.
Overhead migrants included Tree pipit trepiplerke, Golden Plover heilo and Ringed Plover sandlo. Roaming flocks of up to 20 Fieldfare gråtrost now seen daily.
A tourist trip to Hernar in the afternoon proved that this island is quite promising - during an absolutely not birding half an hour ashore I had a Great-spotted Woodpecker flagspett and a Garden Warbler hagesanger. Hopefully there will be time for some daytrips there during the autumn.
