Øygarden 25 May 2009 - Black-tailed Godwits

Black-tailed Godwit svarthalespove

Otter chasing Teal krikkand (click picture for larger image)

At Kollnes there were now four Black-tailed Godwit svarthalespove (three reported there the last couple of days). Perhaps the Tjeldstø bird has joined them.
No sign of the egret at Tjeldstø but entertainment was provided by an Otter hunting a Teal krikkand which seemed to be performing some kind of distraction display, forever leading the Otter on before flying off again. At least seven Sand Martin sandsvale and several House Martin taksvale feeding with Swallows låvesvale over Husvatnet.
The Carrion Crow svartkråke remains at Herdlevær.
