Tjeldstø 24 July 2011 - Tringa storm

Calm and warm for most of the day but only left the house to go swimming.

Best sightings during the first part of the day were limited to a couple of Swift tårnseiler passing ahead of rain and a couple of rather vocal adult White-tailed Eagle havørn over the garden.

 Spotted Reshank sotsnipe
 Wood Sandpiper grønnstilk

Thundery rain set in during the evening - so I went out. The reserve produced a cracking Spotted Redshank sotsnipe, a flock of four Wood Sandpiper grønstilk and a fly-over Green Sandpiper skogsnipe - a great way to round off the day.
