Tjeldstø 29 July 2009 - waders again

Adult Oystercatcher tjeld with well grown young

Despite not really going birding today things turned out quite well with adult Spotted Redshank sotsnipe, a couple of Bar-tailed Godwits lappspove and at least five Ruff brusfugl all the first of the autumn for me. The autumn wader passage is obviously well underway and the southerly winds and rain are typically forcing the birds down.

The only other bird of any note was a Common Swift tårnseiler which was incredibly the first I''ve seen in Øygarden this year.
