Tjeldstø 11 December 2012 - Still winter

Calm with light snowfall much of the morning.

Slightly milder than of late but still very frozen so many species still having a hard time of things.

 Woodcock rugde - has to be cold to see these feeding out in the open....

 Snipe enkeltbekkasin hiding away in a narrow unfrozen channel

 Hooded Crow kråke
Still plenty of Chaffinch bokfink in the garden

A stroll around the reserve produced a Woodcock rugde and a Snipe enkeltbekkasin that are (just) hanging in there on the few patches of unfrozen wet ground.

Other birds included a couple of White-tailed Eagles havørn and a Great-spotted Woodpecker flaggspett.

A brief stop at Dåvøy gave views of a Red-throated Diver smålom and another Snipe enkeltbekkasin.
