Øygarden 07-09 July 2011

Not out much at all and precious little to see. Only migrants at Tjeldstø were a Black-headed Gull hettemåke and an unseasonal male Wigeon brunnakke.

Lots of birds now feeding fledged young including Siskin grønnsisik, Lesser Redpoll brunsisik, Linnet tornirisk and Wheatear steinskvett.

Male Wheatear steinskvett warns its young at Breivik

The Greylags grågås at Tjeldstø seem to have produced in excess of 70 young this year. However, very few Herring Gull gråmåke chicks and almost no terns at all....
