Raven ravn

Fantastic weather again with sun and a light SE wind. Generally quiet birdwise, popped in at a few places.
Still a fair number of Bullfinch dompap about with small parties everywhere.
At Breivik the best birds were a couple of late Meadow Pipit heipiplerke, a Sparrowhawk spurvehauk and a Goshawk hønsehauk causing havoc among the gulls and crows.
Two Blackcap munk were hanging on at Sæle but the bird of the day was an unidentified tick bunting flying over here.
At Hjelme brief views of a Water Rail vannrikse, a Great Spotted Woodpecker flaggspett, Nuthatch spettmeis and Treecreeper trekryper.
Other birds included a Woodcock rugde at Sture and six Common Snipe enkeltbekkasin at Tjeldstø.
