Herdlevær 14 August 2011

Overcast with light southerlies.

Generally a lot about - large numbers of the usual finches and Meadow Pipits heipiplerke dominiating. Also a couple of Whinchat buskskvett and at least two Swifts tårnseiler - things are obviously on the move.

Willow Warblers løvsanger, Whitethroats tornsanger and a Chiff-chaff gransanger also present.

Along the shore a minimum of seven Common Sandpiper strandsnipe were among the waders; more waders were seen heading south over the sea inlcuding Knot polarsnipe and Ruff brushane.

Singles of Arctic Skua tyvjo and Great Skua storjo in among all the usual suspects.
