Tjeldstø 22 September 2012 - Unblocking LSW

Fantastic clear and sunny weather - much more to my liking than off western Australia from where I have just returned.

A lazy stroll around the reserve produced very little - the ideal migration weather meaning most birds will have cleared off or passed right over. However, after several years of waiting I FINALLY unblocked my Øygarden bogey-bird - Lesser-spotted woodpecker dvergspett. The only previous record for Tjeldstø was nine years ago almost to the day - 21 September 2003. Other records for this species are concentrated in this period with two other records from 20 September.
