Tjeldstø 27 November 2012 - Stuck

Calm AND sunny today. Predictably stuck at home in the decent weather.

Not to be deterred we spent the morning ringing in my garden - and caught more birds in three hours than they did on Utsira over the whole weekend. Best bird was a Blue Tit blåmeis with a ring on its leg that indicates it has probably come north up the coast from Lista. Just goes to show...Otherwise just the usual plus a fly over Lapwing vipe.

 Razorbill alke
Guillemot lomvi

A quick dash to the shops - prompted by the discovery of two auks on the sea outside my house - produced a Razorbill alke and a Guillemot lomvi.

Thrush numbers seem to be dropping but still at least six Redwing rødvingetrost present among larger numbers of Fieldfare gråtrost.
