Hjelme Vest 28 December 2008

Common Crossbills grankorsnebb

Highlights were a Great Northern Diver islom on the sea and a flock of at least 37 Purple Sandpipers fjæreplytt. A Woodcock rugde flushed in the woods was the first for some time.

Plenty of other stuff about too including at least four White-tailed Eagle havørn, 90+ Long-tailed Duck havelle, a Velvet Scoter sjøorre, a Black Guillemot teist and a Razorbill alke. An Otter oter fished close to shore.

Still a fair number of Common Crossbill grankorsnebb about - including one that must be the largest billed Common Crossbill I have ever seen!
