Øygarden 28 August 2011 - Peregrines

Strong southerly, mostly sunny

A trip to Solberg showed that it would have been good for seawatching - lots of Gannets havsule, a small flock of Common Scoter svartand and a Red-throated Diver smålom passed in the few minutes I spent there. Best bird here was a Peregrine vandrefalk that gave excellent views - typically I had left the camera in the car....

Peregrine vandrefalk at Tjeldstø

Tjeldstø produced another Peregrine vandrefalk, a couple of Kestrel tårnfalk, a Wood Sandpiper grønnstilk, a Greenshank gluttsnipe, about 30 Golden Plover heilo and at least 12 Snipe enkeltbekkasin.
