Øygarden 12 November 2008 - Thrushes

Mistle Thrush duetrost, Tjeldstø Song thrush måltrost, Tjeldstø, beginning to be late for this species
Redwing rødvingetrost, Tjeldstø Common Crosssbill grankorsnebb, Skogsøy
A rather scaly looking Blackbird svarttrost

Started the day rather late and lazy with some seawatching at Skogsøy - virtually nothing on the move, just small numbers of Cormorant storskarv and a Little Auk alkekonge heading south. A Great Northern Diver islom and a Black Guillemot teist on the sea along with three Curlew storspove provided some compensation.

Herdlevær was very quiet with just a fly over Meadow Pipit heipiplerke and an odd looking Blackbird svartrost of any interest.
Back home a Tjeldstø the pace picked up considerably with a Mistle Thrush duetrost, a late Song Thrush måltrost and a Goldfinch stillits during a very brief look at one of the fields.
