Herdlevær 28 December 2012 - Goldie again

Strong southerly winds slowly increasing. Mainly dry, some thawing.

Golden Eagle kongeørn mobbed by Raven ravn. The split in the white wing patches on the underwing indicate that this bird is at least in its fourth year.

Curlew storspove

Herdlevær seemed rather quiet to start with but things picked up nicely in the end. Highlight was an immature Golden Eagle kongeørn, probably the same bird seen from my house several days ago. Views were not brilliant but better than last time - seems like it may be a fourth year bird or thereabouts.

Other birds of note were a fly-by Curlew storspove and at least two Woodcock rugde. A lone Starling stær was the first for a while.

The two Blackcaps munk remain in the garden.
