Øygarden 06 November 2009 - Winter arrives

Little Auk alkekonge

Snow Bunting snøspurv at Heggøy

Song Thrush måltrost
Ice on much of the freshwater and an altogether more wintery feel today.

Spent most of the day at home so most stuff seen from the house today. However, managed a quick trip out as the light was going in the afternoon.

A female Blackcap munk, 12 Tree Sparrow pilfink, two Sparrowhawks spurvehauk, a White-tailed Eagle havørn, the female Scaup bergand from yesterday and three female Teal krikkand were some of the species seen from the sitting room.

At Heggøy a roadside Snow Bunting snøspurv was the best bird. The Breivik Greylag goose grågås flock has now increased to 11 birds - worth keeping an eye on this flock as it may well attract more intersting stuff.

At Herdlevær a Little Auk alkekonge on the sea was the best sighting.

Late Song Thrushes måltrost seen at a few locations.
