Øygarden 29 April 2011

Trying out the new camera - Greylag grågås in flight

Calm, sunny and very warm.
A quick check at a few localities produced some sightings of interest:

The first Common Sandpipers strandsnipe for Øygarden this year at Hjelme.

At Hjelme Vest a Black Guillemot teist was the first I've seen for a while, small numbers of Long-tailed Duck havelle remain and a White-billed Diver gulnebblom headed north.

At Tjeldstø a Lapland Bunting lappspurv flew over. Later in the day a party of six Black-tailed Godwit svarthalespove dropped in breifly but soon moved on again.
