Øygarden 28 August

Rather wet but obviously stuff on the move. At Tjeldstø highlights were a Spotted Redshank sotsnipe and a Green Sandpiper skogsnipe. Other waders included 25 Golden Plover heilo, three Ruff brusfugl and 12+ Snipe enkeltbekkasin.

A party of five Whinchat buskskvett and several Wheatear steinskvett were probably newly arrived.

Oh yes, and the Carrion Crow svartkråke still about and still as forgettable as last time.

Very brief views of a first year Red-backed Shrike tornskate at Herdlevær - first this year in Øygarden.

Lots of Whinchat moving here yesterday too must be internal body clock switching over on a species scale!
