Øygarden 14 November 2008

Red-breasted Mergansers siland displaying at Dåvøy

Little Auk alkekonge at Tjeldstø

Grey Herson gråhegre

Female Blackcap munk at Dåvøy

Yet another pleasant morning out in Øygarden in mild and calm conditions.

A few Blackcaps munk about with a female at Dåvøy and two males at Alvheim.

At Solberg there was a Great Northern Diver islom on the sea and a Peregrine vandrefalk sat on one of the islands.

Tjeldstø was quite good again with plenty of Little Auks alkeonge on the fjord and a number of late migrants including a Woodpigeon ringdue, a Teal krikkand, a Skylark sanglerke and a Meadow Pipit heipiplerke. Other birds of interest included a Goshawk hønsehauk, three Snipe enkeltbekkasin and a Purple Sandpiper fjæreplytt.
