Øygarden 17 September 2008

Female Two-barred Crossbill båndkorsnebb
A juvenile Two-barred Crossbill båndkorsnebb (probably)
Plenty of Goldcrest fuglekonge about today...
Part of the Golden Plover heilo flock at Breivik

Started the day at Breivik where a flock of about 50 Golden Plover heilo fed with over 30 Ruff brushane and a Curlew storspove. The fields were also full of passerines including a couple of Common Redstart rødstjert, several Wheatear steinskvett, a Skylark sanglerke and a Reed Bunting sivspurv.
Herdlevær was full of stuff and it was impossible to identifiy everything. Best birds here were a small flock of Two-barred Crossbill båndkorsnebb, a Spotted Flycatcher gråfluesnapper, a Pied Flycatcher svarthvit fluesnapper, a female Blackcap munk and several Willow Warbler løvsanger. A couple of Great spotted Woodpecker flagspett and another Reed Bunting sivspurv also at Herdlevær.
