Tjeldstø 23 July 2011

Above - young Swallows låvesvale being fed

Out in the middle of the day under far from ideal conditions - sunny with a brisk northerly.

However, some waders about including the first Ruff brushane of the autumn - an adult male by the look of things. A flock of five adult Golden Plover heilo also out in the reserve. A flock of at least 100 Starling stær were also migrants passing through.

Otherwise very much business as usual with the geese preparing for departure and White Wagtails linerle, Swallows låvesvale etc congregating around Husvatnet to feed on the abundance of insects.
