Solberg 22 November 2010

Red-necked Grebe gråstrupedykker
Male Blackcap munk feeding on elderberries

and snowberries....

Calm and sunny AGAIN.

Solberg was generally quiet so it was a case of quality not quantity, a Red-necked Grebe gråstrupedykker on the sea was probably the bird reported there yesterday and photogrpahed later at Heggøy. Also a Great Northern Diver islom heading south and a male Peregrine vandrefalk on the lookout for prey. Still plenty of Mealy Redpoll gråsisik about with at least 300 seen just at Solberg. Five White-tailed Eagle havørn also presesent here.

A Teal krikkand that flew in with eight Mallard stokkand was probably the bird seen in the area throughout the month.

At Sæle at least three Blackcap munk fed on elderberries and even snow berries.
Small numbers of Bullfinch dompap still widespread.
