Øygarden 06 February

Check out the bulging crop on this White-tailed Eagle havørn - the reason why is given below. Ravens ravn were also seen collecting wool from the same corpse.

A rather sad picture - Norway's last weathership, the Polarfront, is now retired and currently moored at Blomvåg.

With temperatures just above freezing it was incredibly hard going underfoot today. The dog became at least double his normal weight with the amount of snow stuck in his fur.

This prevented the planned walk but nevertheless we connected with a few Black Grouse orrfugl and a Goshawk hønsehauk in addition to a few White-tailed Eagles havørn, Crested tits toppmeis and Common Crossbills grankorsnebb.

A Starling stær in the garden and a Common Scoter svartand on the sea in front of the house were both new species for Tjeldstø this year.
