Øygarden 01 January 2012 - Bird Race Day 3

Light southerly, rain

Took things rather easier today and only saw a few good birds.

At Alvheim a Pergegrine vandrefalk was the best bird of the day, four Velvet Scoter sjøorre also seen here along with White-tailed Eagles havørn and a single Kittiwake krykkje.

Solberg produced just a few Purple Sandpiper fjæreplytt and a Kittiwake krykkje along with most of the usual species.

Tjeldstø produced little for me - just a few each of Common Gull fiskemåke, Black-headed Gull hettemåke, Little Auks alkekonge and a Sparrowhawk spurvehauk. The nine Bean Geese sædgås and a Kestrel tårnfalk were also reported from Tjeldstø
