Tjeldstø 02 October 2011 - sibes

Light NW wind, very pleasant conditions.

Barely out of the garden before a Richard's Pipit tartarpiplerke flew over calling repeatedly. Always a good start to the day....A Yellow-browed Warbler gulbrynsanger also put in a very vocal appearance a little down the road.

Tree Sparrows pilfink

Lots of birds, largely finches and thrushes on the ground were already moving on as I did the rounds. A couple of lateish Swallows låvesvale fed over the marshes and other sightings included a migrant Great-spotted Woodpecker flaggspett, a Blackcap munk, a Chiff-chaff gransanger and a flock of 16 Tree Sparrows pilfink.

At least 10 Snipe enkeltbekkasin about but only a few Golden Plover heilo.
