Øygarden 28 September - Sibes at last

Fresh southerlies with light rain, setting in heavier in the afternoon.

A quick check at Husvatnet, Tjeldstø produced some good birds in the form of a female Shoveler skjeand, a  late Ruff brushane and a Merlin dvergfalk.

Moving on to Herdlevær a flyover Richard's Pipit tartarpiplerke was the highlight. Not much in the way of grounded migrants other than a single Snow Bunting snøspurv. Waders included two Oystercatcher tjeld and a Common Sandpiper strandsnipe.

Further south in Øygarden a Yellow-browed Warbler gulbrynsanger was ringed near Toft.
