Skogsøy 14 February 2009

Female Pochard taffeland - a local rarity
Whoopers sangsvane on the shoreline

White-tailed Eagles havørn

Another day, another rarity - this time a female Pochard taffeland - and only the second I have seen in Øygarden. No doubt forced out to the coast due to the cold. Over 20 Whoopers sangsvane present too. A couple of Waxwing sidensvans flew south.
Skogsøy was otherwise very quiet indeed with just a few showy White-tailed Eagles havørn and a Woodcock rugde of any interest.
