Øygarden 25 November 2011

South westerly gale, heavy seas

White-tailed Eagle havørn at Solberg

Little at Solberg other than the usual White-tailed Eagles havørn and a flock of 15 or so Purple Sandpipers fjæreplytt - forced onto one of the nearest islands by high water levels and very heavy seas.

Tjeldstø was slightly better with the Pochard taffeland pair still present on Rotevatnet. A Wigeon brunnakke, a couple of Razorbill alke and two Velvet Scoter sjøorre were other species seen here.

A drive-by at Breivik produced 26 Greylags grågås and eight White-fronts tundragås.
