Øygarden 31 October 2008

Treecreeper trekryper
Lots of Blackcap munk about

A quick check of a few localities produced some more late autumn birds.

At Solberg a flock of 15 Purple Sandpiper fjæreplytt were the first of the autumn, a Curlew storspove was also on the shore. Two White-tailed Eagle havørn, a Black Guillemot teist and a Snow Bunting snøspurv were other birds of interest here.
Alvheim was quiet on the sea but more eagles, a Peregrine vandrefalk and an adult Great Northern Diver islom meant that it was worth the trip.

At Sæle the best bird was a Treecreeper trekryper. Otherwise the bushes were full of Blackcap munk.

A Goshawk hønsehauk flew over the reserve at Tjeldstø.
