Hernar 18 February 2009

Spent the morning on Hernar. A decidely spring like feel to the island which was almost totally snow free compared to the snow covered "mainland" Øygarden.

Generally fairly quiet but a Song Thrush måltrost was an unusal winter find. Other birds of interest included several Woodcock rugde, a Snipe enkeltbekkasin, a Curlew storspove, a Redwing rødvingetrost and five Starling stær.

At Tjeldstø a Skylark sanglerke was the highlight along with two Starling stær and a Woodcock rugde.
