Øygarden 23 February 2011

Record shot of a Merlin dvergfalk at Hjelme West

With a bitingly cold wind it was hard going today with generally little about.

Best sightings were both from Hjelme Vest in the form of two Goosander laksand (first in Øygarden this year) flying past and a cracking Merlin dvergfalk.

With so few auks about Razorbills alke on the sea at Alvheim and Hjelme Vest were both worth mentioning. Otherwise just White-tailed Eagles havørn, a few Gannet havsule etc.
