Øygarden 03 May 2009

Golden Plover heilo at Breivik

Had a quiet day with just a short walk at Breivik out of the house.

Bird of the day was a male Shoveler skjeand scared up out of the reserve at Tjeldstø by an eagle.

At Breivik a flock of at least 25 Golden Plover heilo joined the local Lapwings vipe and Curlews storspove. Best bird here was a Lapland Bunting lappspurv. The area was heaving with Wheatear steinskvett and plenty of the usual suspects.

Elsewhere a Sand Martin sandsvale was the first I have seen in Øygarden this year.
