Rock pipit skjærpiplerke at Herdlevær
Bar-tailed Godwit lappspove at Tjeldstø

At Herdelvær a (the?) Chiff-chaff gransanger indulged in a bit of autumn singing - no doubt inspired by the cracking weather. A couple of Reed Buntings sivspurv and a flock of 15 Siskin grønnsisik were the only signs of migrants on the ground - although there was a steady passage of Meadow Pipits heipiplerke overhead..

A few minutes at Tjeldstø produced a Kestrel tårnfalk heading south and a Peregrine vandrefalk harassing the crows. A Bar-tailed Godwit lappspove turned up beside Husvatnet in the evening.
