Tjeldstø 22 January 2013 - Turnstones

Cold, calm and sunny again.

A mad dash around a few localities still took more time than it should have. Tjeldstø produced the best results with a flock of six Turnstone steinvender a good winter find. A Purple Sandpiper fjæreplytt with them was also new for Tjeldstø for the year.

Other birds here included a Snipe enkeltbekkasin still hanging in there and Tree Sparrow pilfink numbers in the garden went back up to five.

Solberg was very pleasant but rather quiet with three Velvet Scoter sjøorre and three Otters the best of what was on offer.
