Øygarden 05 December 2008

Male and female Scaup bergand
Female Scaup bergand

Greylags grågås

Went to Heggøy look for the male Scaup bergand that has been reported recently - and found a pair feeding in a sheltered bay.

After that things went downhill fast. At Hjelme West there were four White-tailed Eagles havørn, a Little Auk alkekonge, a Sparrowhawk spurvehauk and a flock of 60 Long-tailed Duck havelle - the biggest flock I've seen thus far this winter.

At Tjeldstø a Snipe enkeltbekkasin flew over the garden and a flock of 11 Greylags grågås fed in one of the fields.
