Herdlevær 21 October 2009

Redwing rødvingetrost
Great-spotted Woodpecker flaggspett

Goshawk hønsehauk

Blackbird svarttrost

Quite a good day in fantastic conditions. A number of half-decent birds, though again without anything terribly special.

Woodpeckers were a them again with at least two Great-spotted Woodpecker flaggspett and a "singing" Grey-headed Woodpecker gråspett. Other sightings worth a mention were a Goldfinch stillits, a Goshawk hønsehauk, a Lapland Bunting lappspurv flying over and a Yellowhammer gulspurv. Two Blackcap munk also present. A Rook kornkråke turned up near the parking lot.

Small numbers of Common Redpoll gråsisik, Siskin grønnsisik, Brambling bjørkefink, Crossbills granskorsnebb and thrushes passing over.

At Sæle it was more of the same with a minimum of five Blackcap munk, a Goshawk hønsehauk and most the usual.
