Tjeldstø 18 April 2011 - Willow warbler

Calm but dull. Plenty new in today despite minimal time out and about. A Woodcock rugde roding over the house during the night was the first new for the year. Snipe enkeltbakkasin also displaying simultaneously. The first Willow Warbler løvsanger for the county sang in the reserve where a few Lesser Redpoll brunsisik also showed up. A Golden Plover heilo (first seen yesterday) went up with everything else when a Peregrine vandrefalk flew over. Wheatear steinskvett singing along with several each of Song Thrush måltrost, Dunnock jernspurv and Redwing rødvingetrost.

In glorious sunny weather during the afternoon a Brambling bjørkefink dropped into the garden.
