Lyngøy & Hernar 13 September 2008

Spotted Flycatcher gråfluesnapper
Curlew storspove
Whinchat buskskvett

Exploring these two islands properly for the first time gave some very promising results. These islands are rather different from each other but both have very good potential.

Plenty of migrants about with best birds being a Common Redstart rødstjert, a late Sand Martin sandsvale and a Lesser Whitethroat møller on Hernar. Other migrants included a Tree Pipit trepiplerke and several each of Spotted Flycatcher gråfluesnapper and Whinchat buskskvett. A Great Spotted Woodpecker flaggspett, two Kestrel tårnfalk and a Merlin dvergfalk were also present on Hernar.
Plenty of Willow Warbler løvsanger, Twite bergirisk, Linnet tornirisk, small numbers of thrushes and plenty more besides....

Waders included Common Sandpiper strandsnipe, Curlew storspove and Knot polarsnipe.
