Øygarden 19 March 2009

Purple Sandpiper fjæreplytt flock

Basically just half an hour at Solberg where the best birds were three Ringed Plover sandlo - the first I've seen in Øygarden this year. A flock of at least 60 Purple Sandpiper fjæreplytt were also present here.

Migration was also obvious with a flock of 65 Oystercatcher tjeld flying north as well as Skylark sanglerke heard overhead.

The Greenland Whitefront tundragås and the Pochard taffeland were both still at Tjeldstø.
