Hernar 25 March 2009

The first Chiff-chaff gransanger at Tjeldstø
The Herring gull gråmåke colony is already established at Tjeldstø

Spent the morning on Hernar but nothing very exciting to see. A Perergrine vandrefalk was one of the better birds and a couple of Black-headed Gulls hettemåke were the first I've seen there. A Song Thrush måltrost may have been the overwintering bird.

Other than that just a selection of the usual early spring migrants - Skylark sanglerke, Woodpigeon ringdue, several Meadow Pipits heipiplerke, a couple of Ringed Plover sandlo and most of the usual suspects.

I returned home to find the first Chiff-chaff gransanger of the year feeding in my garden....
