Tjeldstø 24 September 2012 - Peregrine

Yet another day of calm and sunny weather. Birds seemed thin on the ground and yet there were a few decent sightings in a local context.

Peregrine vandrefalk

A Nuthatch spettmeis was an unusual sighting as was a rather early (and freshwater) record of Little Grebe dvergdykker.

A Peregrine vandrefalk hunted in the reserve where there were only a few waders - several Common Snipe enkeltbekkasin, a Lapwing vipe, a Golden Plover heilo and Ringed Plover sandlo heard passing over.

A couple of small flocks of Brambling bjørkefink were amazingly the first I've seen in Øygarden this year.
