Øygarden 22 September 2009

Record shot of Rook kornkråke
White Wagtail linerle

Arctic Tern rødnebbterne at Solberg

Very strong southerlies but little of the forecast rain. Didn't have much time out and about and the best bird was a Rook kornkråke at Tjeldstø where Guillemots lomvi and a Gannet havsule were also seen heading down the fjord.
At Solberg four Arctic Tern rødnebbterne were feeding. Problems with the autofocus on my camera caused no end of frustration whilst trying to take some pictures so I gave up and went home. A latish Oystercatcher tjeld waited out the weather here.
