Tjeldstø 26 April 2012 - Crane!

Calm and overcast with light rain.

 Record shots of Common Crane trane flying over

Undisputed highlight today was a Common Crane trane that flew over heading south west.

A couple of singing Willow Warbler løvsanger were the first of the year at Tjeldstø as was a Lapland Bunting lappspurv. A Common Sandpiper strandsnipe and two Swallow låvesvale were the first I've had in Øygarden this year but both had been reported earlier in the month.

The Ring Ousel ringtrost was present again - unusual for them to hang around like this in Øygarden.
