Øygarden 16 February 2011

Calm conditions enabled better viewing conditions over the sea.

A Great-northern Diver islom on the sea at Alvheim and two more at Hjelme Vest were the best sightings. At Hjelme Vest a Curlew storspove and an overwintering Oystercatcher tjeld were also new for the year. Quite a few Gannets havsule seen offshore.

Purple Sandpipers fjæreplytt, White-tailed Eagles havørn and most of the usual species seen at a number of locations. Generally few seaduck about.

A small flock of Siskin grønnsisik at Hjelme Vest were the best of the passerines today.
