Tjeldstø 30 April 2009 - Gargany

Greeland Whitefront tundragås with Greylags

Best birds by far were a pair of rather flighty Gargany knekkand which moved around the various lakes in the reserve. A singing Lesser Whitethroat møller was another first for the year. Another highlight was a male Merlin dvergfalk which made several passes over the reserve. No sign of the Whitefront tundragås seen yesterday but this long staying bird may well still be in the area.
Five Tufted Duck toppand on Rotevatnet were probably migrating birds.
Other than that it was pretty much business as usual with plenty of breeding waders, gulls and geese.
