Øygarden 26 November 2012 - Grey-headed Woodpecker

Fantastic weather again. Light easterly breeze and mild.

Red-throated Diver smålom

A decent enough morning out. Started at Hjelme West where there were several White-tailed Eagles havørn and small numbers of the usual seaduck. Best bird here was a Red-throated Diver smålom.

Robin rødstrupe

A short stop at Sæle produced a Grey-headed Woodpecker gråspett - the first I've seen for a while - and a small flock of Waxwing sidensvans.

 Just look at the beak on this thing - massive!

At Hatten a flock of around 20 Parrot Crossbills furukorsnebb fed right beside the road.
