Hjelme Vest 20 November 2011

Southerly and overcast.

A quick look at the sea produced nothing unexpected - a nice Great Northern Diver islom, flocks of Common Scoter svartand, Long-tailed Duck havelle, a few Purple Sandpiper fjæreplytt and a flock of eight Red-throated Diver smålom heading south. Small numbers of Kittiwake krykkje, a Otter and a couple of Porpoises also seen.

A Woodcock rugde was the only bird of note in the woods.

 Common Crossbill grankorsnebb
Female Blackcap munk at Sæle

An even briefer stop at Sæle on the way home produced a couple of Blackcap munk and two Woodpigeon ringdue. Sadly a large number of the elderberry trees which are so attractive to migrants have been cut down.
