Blomvåg 26 October 2009 - Dusky Warbler

Dusky Warbler brunsanger at Blomvåg

Being only around the fifth county record and the second for Øygarden yesterday's Dusky Warbler brunsanger predicatably caused quite a twitch by local standards - several birders making a trip out around dawn. Equally predictably I was back again in order to try and take some better pictures.

Although the light was somewhat better the bird remained incredibly active and for the most part giving just fleeting glimpses. After a couple of hours trying I gave up and had to make do with a few record shots. Just like yesterday the bird was very vocal at times - enabling observers to relocate it as it moved from tree to tree.
