Øygarden 31 March 2012

Northerly winds and mostly sunny

 Chaffinch bokfink singing in the garden
 Siskins grønnsisik are continuing to turn up in the garden and elsewhere

A quick trip to Solberg was enough to confirm a decent passage of migrants north - mostly Common Gulls fiskemåke, but also a Red-throated Diver smålom and a couple of Siskin grønnsisik among other things. A single Ringed Plover sandlo sat on the rocks here.

My best observation in an Øygarden context was a very vocal Nuthatch spettmeis at Sture.

The Gadwall snadderand pair remained at Alvheim and the first Wigeon brunnakke of the year was reported.
