Solberg 22 December 2010 - Otters

Otter enjoying a fish

Starling stær in the garden
First winter Great Northern Diver islom

Still very quiet both bird and weatherwise. Almost no duck today but a first year Great Northern Diver islom made up for that. A single Rock Pipit skjærpiplerke and about 20 Purple Sandpiper fjæreplytt also seen here.

A party of four otters played in the snow on one of the islands and another showed very well closer in.

A Brambling bjørkefink, a few Mealy Redpoll gråsisik, 19 Tree Sparrow pilfink, 15+ Chaffinch bokfink, four Starling stær, nine Blackbird svarttrost and the usual in the garden.
