Øygarden 26 September 2009

Spotted Flycatcher gråfluesnapper
THE bird of Hernar - Twite bergirisk

Wheatear steinskvett

Spent the day on Hernar where there was not a massive amount of activity. However, a Water Rail vannrikse was new in and a Lesser Whitethroat møller was present. Some frustratingly difficult to see phylloscopus warblers went unidentified - only a couple of Willow Warbler løvsanger and a Chiff-chaff gransanger were identified with certainty. Several Bar-tailed Godwit lappspove flew over and small numbers of other migrants were in the bushes.

An adult Common Tern makrellterne at Hellesøy was a relatively late find for this species.

At Breivik at least one Richard's Pipit tundrapiplerke remained.
