Hjelme Vest 19 February

There IS a Dipper fossekall in this picture - honest!

Fantastic but cold weather continues unabated.
A trip to Hjelme Vest produced a long awaited Dipper fossekall on the way out. On the islands there were a couple of Oystercatcher tjeld - probably the overwintering birds, a Turnstone steinvender and a Curlew storspove.
A Velvet Scoter sjøorre was among the usual seaduck present. Only one Black guillemot teist and no divers....
As usual an otter turned up - seeing them daily pretty much wherever I go at the moment.
