Hernar 30 September 2008 - Yellow-browed at last

Arctic Tern rødnebbterne - last one this year?

Spent another good day on Hernar - the highlight being a nice Yellow-browed Warbler gulbrynsanger. This is the second bird in Øygarden this autumn.
Other good birds included at least one Lapland Longspur lappspurv and a couple of fly over Grey Wagtails vintererle. Although migrants were thin on the ground there were still plenty of birds about with at least 90 Twite bergirisk, a fly over Grey Plover tundralo, an Arctic Tern rødnebbterne and 16 Swallows låvesvale.

A mystery bunting was the one that got away today....
