Herdlevær 01 September 2009 - Sanderlings

First year Sanderling sandløper
Two adult Sanderlings sandløper

Knot polarsnipe

Cormorant storskarv

This amazing looking caterpillar was HUGE

At Herdlevær a small flock of Knot polarsnipe were attacked by a Sparrowhawk spurvehauk as I tried to get close enough for photos. Also here were a few Sanderling sandløper, Ringed Plover sandlo, a Dunlin myrsnipe and a Redshank rødstilk.

Other than several Wheatear steinskvett there was little in the way of passerines at Herdlevær.

The first migrant Spotted Flycatcher gråfluesnapper of the autumn turned up at Solberg.
