Hernar 20 October 2009

New camera working well even at high ISO settings - Wren gjerdesmett
Reed Bunting sivspurv

Black Grouse orrfugl

Goldcrest fuglekonge

No rarities today but plenty of birds about - largely thrushes on the move. A rather late Willow Warbler løvsanger was probably the best bird. Also singles of Blackcap munk and Chiff-chaff gransanger.

A Magpie skjære was the first I've had on the island this year, as was a Black Grouse orrfugl. Both species have been recorded on Hernar earlier in the year.

A Goshawk hønsehauk put in an appearance alongside the usual White-tailed Eagles havørn and there were various finches, numerous Goldcrest fuglekonge, a Reed Bunting sivspurv etc around.
