Hernar 04 April 2012

Calm and sunny. Hard frost again in the night.

A Twite bergirisk - one of the Hernar specialities

Wonderful weather so ideal migration conditions which meant that a lot of stuff was moving north over the sea again. Typically for early April this mean Oystercatchers tjeld, Common Gull fiskemåke and Cormorants storskarv.

The island itself was very quiet indeed with little in the way of passerines present. Of saving grace were the first Twite bergirisk I have seen this year, a single Linnet tornirisk and a Skylark sanglerke. A few Meadow Pipits heipiplerke singing added to the feeling of spring.
