Øygarden 21 January - Smew

Eagle Owl hubro
Grey-headed Woodpecker gråspett

Two Little Grebe dvergdykker at Herdlevær

Female Smew lappfiskand (left hand bird) with Goldeneye kvinand

The prolonged big freeze is presumably to thank for the best sighting today - a female Smew lappfiskand on the sea with well over 20 Goldeneye kvinand.

Little passing although a number of distant auks headed south. At least three Black Guillemots teist and a Great Northern Diver islom on the sea.

In the woods a Grey-headed Woodpecker gråspett was probably the same one that has been in the area since December.
A very quick look at Herdlevær produced a couple of Little Grebe dvergdykker and a Great-spotted Woodpecker flaggspett.
Last, but by now means least, a walk in the woods produced nice views of an Eagle Owl hubro.
