Tjeldstø 17 January 2013 - Another new species

Calm, sunny and still well below freezing.

Yesterday's snow helped show the tracks of a Woodcock rugde obviously desparate for somewhere to feed. Another was seen in flight during the morning school run.

A Snipe enkeltbekkasin (different bird to yesterday) fed in an area planned to be obliterated. Wonder where these birds will go then....

A single Redwing rødvingetrost feeding on juniper berries was the first of the year in Øygarden.

A very quick look at Solberg produced nothing out of the ordinary, just White-tailed Eagle havørn, Long-tailed Ducks havelle and the usual suspects. No Eiders ærfugl here yet again.....
