¨Tjeldstø 14 November 2009 - Parrot Crossbills

A very dull day indeed. Took a walk around the reserve and picked up a new for the year - a flock of seven Parrot Crossbills furukorsnebb. There is no doubt I miss more than I see of this species - one has to be very careful as there are often heavy billed Common Crossbills grankorsnebb about in Øygarden.
A few Teal krikkand and a Wigeon brunnakke remain with the Mallards stokkand.
Other than that just a few White-tailed Eagles havørn squabbling over something or other out in the reserve.
